Victorian Fairy Painting

October 14, 1998 to January 17, 1999

Critically and commercially popular during the nineteenth century was the intriguing and distinctly British genre of Victorian fairy painting, the subject of an exhibition that came to The Frick Collection. The paintings and works on paper, roughly thirty in number, were selected by Edgar Munhall, Curator of The Frick Collection, from a comprehensive touring exhibition — the first of its type for this subject. The original exhibition was organized by the University of Iowa Museum of Art and the Royal Academy of Arts, London.
