Arthur Rackham's Illustration to J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens was originally part of an earlier work, The Little White Bird by J.M. Barrie. The Peter Pan chapters were extracted and published as a separate work in 1906. The color plates to Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens by Arthur Rackham made the book immediately popular, and drew attention to Rackham, who was not well-known before then.

Many other Rackham illustrations are here.

About Art Passions: Art Passions began a tribute to artists whose work I grew up, and whose work has meaning for me personally. It does seem to have grown from there. You can find out more about Art Passions and see the list of artists on the home page.
