The time when Queen Victoria controlled England was known as the Victorian era. It is considered an age of advancing industrialization and technology conquered manufacturing. Disenchantment of the world accompanies the development. Artists form an opposite pole in time. It is time to turn fairy tales into pictures and allow dreams. One of the most productive artists was Sir John Gilbert. In self-taught teaching, he acquired various means of representation. He drew, finished illustrations and gained initial attention in the British art scene. He conjured up watercolors and mastered the water in the pigments like no other Brit.

Letterpress was subject to industrial influence. John Gilbert felt comfortable here. He gave a visual language to the stories of Robin Hood. Shakespeare's world got faces. And Gilbert created locations for the stories of Charles Dickens. Gilbert was very lucky in the production of wood engravings and watercolors. A feeling that was clearly evident in his works. The artist John Gilbert was honored to exhibit in the major schools in London. A novelty, since he himself had no academic career and the London art scene was an elitist circle. Gilbert's pictures can tell stories. They are powerful and particularly illustrative. Gilbert escapes reality and takes his viewers with him. A talent that was a sought-after talent, especially in the Victorian era. Gilbert created illustrations for stories and numerous children's books in a powerful yet sensitive manner.

Sir John Gilbert raised his talent and life for art to the position of President of the Royal Watercolor Society. The academy sought better recognition of watercolor painting in art. The often spherical watercolors had a hard time facing oil painting. Gilbert had dealt with both techniques and offered the advantages of watercolor painting. John Gilbert received an academic degree based on his knowledge. Despite the reputation of Gilbert in the time of Queen Victoria, the level of awareness could not be carried into the modern era. Sir John Gilbert is overshadowed by painters like Leighton, Watts or Millais. The artists are united in having created a world in which people found refuge at a time when industrial chimneys drew a dark world. Society withdrew and enjoyed a world of fairies and nature spirits. While at the same time in France, the French painters, who captured changes in the industry and welcomed them in a lively manner, the English retreated into romantic worlds and fairytale images. © Meisterdrucke
