Between 1840 and 1870 - the golden age of fairy painting - artists expressed these longings and aspirations, as well as reflecting those of a wider Victorian audience." "Christopher Wood, an expert on Victorian art, takes us into a world of fantasy, magic, ghouls and ghosts, spiritualism and psychology. In discussing the fascination with fairies, he examines the impact of literature (notably A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Tempest), dance and music on the paintings of the period, and shows how the Victorian art world found an acceptable outlet for portraying taboos, such as nudity, eroticism, opiates, and the world of the supernatural."--Jacket." ;
