Fine Art/Thomas Maybank
Where can I find information about this painter of fairy pictures?
Thomas Maybank 1898 - 1925.
He illustrated a number of books, incl. an Alice in Wonderland in 1920s.
I especially remember his funny goblins on the endpapers of some Wonder Books 1920s. The picture at the back was the same scene at the front only seconds later when a great calamity had occurred!
Thomas Maybank, British illustrator flourished 1898-1925. He practised in in Beckenham, Croydon, and Esher, contributing a number of startling fairy designs to "Punch" between 1902 and 1904. These include "A Bank Holiday in Goblin Land", "Coronation of Titania", and "New Year's Eve", all taking great inspiration from the work of John Doyle and his four sons.
His work is found in the Victoria & Albert Museum.
