It was already apparent in the youth of the Englishman Arthur Rackham that he would once become a great artist. The London-born Rackham was completely inspired to the artist's life when he was only 17-year-old made a trip to far-away Australia. He began to capture everything on his journey, drawing and watercolor. This unbridled passion for art later made him a major illustrator of our time.

As with many artists, the Rackham family was against the artistic ambitions of the young son-man. Against the will of his father, the gentle rebel enrolled at the Lambeth School of Art. During the day, he was an employee in an office so as not to strain the relationship with his family. He tirelessly worked on his drawings after business hours. Incidentally, he worked as an illustrator for newspapers, sometimes for the Westminster Budget Newspaper. In his free artistic work Rackham was particularly interested in book illustrations. Here he was able to give free rein to his creativity.

Rackham's introduction to the book illustration began with a travel guide titled To the Other Side: A Guide to Canada and the United States. It was the first book he illustrated that was published. He also breathed life into the famous fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm with his drawings. Rackham's watercolors for Lewis Carroll's famous story of Alice in Wonderland were also a great success and left a lasting mark on the childhood of many generations. The illustration for fairy tales, tales and fantasy became Rackham's beloved genre.

His drawing style is reminiscent of that of Aubrey Beardsley , but is still unique and outstandingly different. His pictures are full of imagination, ingenuity and attention to detail. In 1905 he established himself with his version of the American story Rip van Winkle as a leading decorative illustrator for the Edwardian period around 1800.

Among others, he was a draftsman for classics such as Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream, Gulliver's Travels, A Christmas Carol, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." Rackham was able to secure his deserved place in the history of illustration with his detailed and loving pictures. © Meisterdrucke
