Fairy Tale Art Images
Sleeping Beauty, by Henry Maynell Rheam

Fairy Tales are the myths we live by, evoking the imagination and teaching us the lessons of the heart. These images are from illustrations to the best loved fairy tales from Perrault and the Brothers Grimm.

About Art Passions: Art Passions began a tribute to artists whose work I grew up, and whose work has meaning for me personally. The list of artists on artpassions.net, including recent additions to the site, as well as other information are availble on the home page.
