Comment:        SHK 11.0427 MSD in Art

Dear Jinny Webber:

Two sites that might help you with Victorian fairy illustrations for
MSND (particularly the Dadd) are:

        Webmagick and ArtMagick.

These can be accessed through the links at The Endicott Studio for
Mythic Arts, whose address is:

        www.Endicott-Studio.com

You would go to the Endicott Studio site, hit Links, and then scroll
down to Art art category, where both are listed.  Terri Windling,
creator of the Endicott Studio, says the woman who has put together
these two art sites is an incredible resource.  If she doesn't have what
you want, she'll very likely be able to tell you where to find it.

Best of luck!

Ellen

The main catch in Jinny Weber's request is that it takes time to order
or make slides.  There are good colour reproductions of several MND
illustrations (including Dadd) in Victorian Fairy Painting ed. Jane
Martineau (London: Royal Academy of Arts, 1997).  Perhaps also it might
be possible to use something from Kenneth Garlick's "Illustrations to
'AMND' before 1920" Shakespeare Survey 37 (1984).  The Folger Library's
set of eight versions of Bottom's transformation by early nineteenth
century artists is reproduced in Shakespeare Quarterly 47 (1996),
306-18.  If you have access to Cassell's Illustrated Shakespeare 3.vols
nd. [1864-8], Henry Selous provides abundant images. Sir John Gilbert
also copiously illustrated Henry Staunton's 1858 edition.  (There are of
course many illustrated editions from the last nearly two hundred
years). Gary Jay Williams' Our Moonlight Revels (U. of Iowa P., 1997) is
also well illustrated.  Perhaps it would be possible to photograph and
make slides from some of these books and articles?  For an academic
lecture it doesn't seem that any copyright would be violated.
