Walter Crane (15 August 1845 – 14 March 1915) was a British artist and book illustrator. He is considered to be the most influential, and among the most prolific, children's book creators of his generation and, along with Randolph Caldecott and Kate Greenaway, one of the strongest contributors to the child's nursery motif that the genre of English children's illustrated literature would exhibit in its developmental stages in the later 19th century.

Crane's work featured some of the more colourful and detailed beginnings of the child-in-the-garden motifs that would characterize many nursery rhymes and children's stories for decades to come. He was part of the Arts and Crafts movement and produced an array of paintings, illustrations, children's books, ceramic tiles and other decorative arts. Crane is also remembered for his creation of a number of iconic images associated with the international Socialist movement.

@eak, hope you are doing well in this new year. I apologize
for not seeing your comment until now.

Here it is February 13, 2021, I do so hope that you have
found a place to begin on researching this handsome artist,
Walter Crane (I have to share with you, he reminds me of
so much of my former husband, he has such a penetrating
stare on his countenance, gives me goosebumps when I look
at his photo, it has such a hypnotizing effect on me. Sigh, but
he could be a dangerous individual, when he was in a jealous
rage. I pity the women who came into his life after my departure.

Thanks for that intro to Walter Crane; I can't wait to do some more research into the whys and wherefores of this influential writer/artist/politically engaged man. Well, hmmmm... Where to begin? puzzle? research? puzzle? research? How does one choose between two such inviting engagements? Hmmmm...this could take awhile....
