Born in 1854, the French painter and illustrator began his training with Henri Lehmann at the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris. But soon the young artist was gripped by the wanderlust and after long journeys through Europe he finally took a job in England, which was to become his professional home.

In 1882 he took a job at the publishing house The Illustrated London News, where he illustrated newspapers and novels. He also illustrated the works of famous authors of his time, including the writings of the committed social reformer Walter Besant.

However, Forestier did not find his artistic destiny until a few years later, when he began to concentrate on historical and prehistoric motifs. He became famous for his extremely careful and detailed illustrations of life in a prehistoric village of the Iron Age near Glastonbury in England. The illustrations translated the results of early archaeological research in Europe into pictures, thus making the findings accessible to a wide audience. Forestier's work soon shaped the general perception of life in prehistoric times both in England and on the continent and continues to have an impact today.

World famous is his 1922 depiction of the "Nebraska Man", which portrays the "Neanderthal of North America" and was created in response to another archaeological excavation. In his late work, however, the artist let his imagination run wild; scientifically, the famous sketch was already considered unencodable back then.

Forestier died in 1930 as a respected artist in his adopted country England. © Meisterdrucke
