Biography:
Arthur Rackham is remembered for his children’s book illustrations, particularly Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm, which was published in 1900. His work was highly popular until World War I and his only competition was Edmund Dulac. After World War I, the market for children’s book decreased, but Rackham’s work still sold in galleries.
