"For Deviants interested in creating or collecting art inspired by The Golden Age of Illustration, 1880's to 1920's.
Reminiscent of the Golden Age of Illustration, these artists employ crisp, prominent line work to depict whimsical moments from stories real or imagined. Their work is typically flat, in a style reminiscent of the Nouveau or Arts and Crafts movements. Washes of color serve to block out focal points and create atmosphere. Texture is often achieved with mottled watercolor and paper textures, and/or patterns of exacting detail such as feathers, scales, individual strands of hair, or leaves on trees. Forms are frequently full-body portraits of characters in action, depicted in a manner that makes the figures seem piled up vertically on the page.
Focused in the first 20 years of the 20th century, artists such as Edmund Dulac and Arthur Rackham were foremost in this particular style of book illustration, and created some of the most famous images we know of classics such as "Peter Pan", "Alice in Wonderland", "Arabian Nights", and collections from Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm.
Artists representative of this style include:
Howard Pyle, Elizabeth Shippen Green, Ivan Bilibin, Millicent Sowerby, Edmund Dulac, Kay Nielsen, Arthur Rackham, and others."
