I was going to find coffee but then Chicago decided to thunder storm. Guess I’m going to stay inside and watch Joan Jett music videos

Victorian fairy painting

'Fairy painting, particularly when produced in its Golden Age, between 1840 and 1870, is a peculiarly British contribution to the development of Romanticism. […] As modern industrial progress engulfed the English countryside, the Victorians embraced belief in fairies as a reaction to the disenchantment of the world […] Fairy painting is the visual evidence of a spectrum of mid-19th-century preoccupations: nationalism, antiquarianism, exploration, anthropology, the dismantling of religious belief and, crucially, the emergence of spiritualism.’ Jeremy Maas and others, Victorian Fairy Paintingexhib. catalogue (Royal Academy of Arts: Merrell Holberton, London, 1998)
