Critically and commercially popular during the nineteenth century, the intriguing and distinctly British genre of Victorian fairy painting was the subject of an exhibition at The Frick Collection. The roughly thirty paintings and works on paper 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.
