As an artist making illustrations for coloring books I have an interest in the illustration throughout time. In the pipparossi.com blog we explore some illustrations from the past. Each post describes a different artwork.
In this post we exhibit Walter Crane (British, 1845 – 1915 ), an important English book illustrator. Belonging to the Arts and Crafts Movement and famous for his child in the garden illustrations. As the creator of the Lost Garden coloring book I greatly admire this British artist.
