Arthur Rackham became the leading British figure in what is called The Golden Age of Illustration, a period that included contemporaries like Edmund Dulac and the Brothers Robinson in England, and Howard Pyle and his Brandywine School in America. He was a giant among this group, considered by many the premier illustrator of his day.
