Richard Doyle

Richard “Dickie” Doyle came from a family of artists that included his father John Doyle and two brothers James and Charles. He was the uncle of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Like Andrew Wyeth, he learned to draw from his father and completed his first book illustrations at the age of twelve. He illustrated works by Dickens and Thackeray and specialized in fairy tales, including The King of the Golden River and his masterpiece In Fairyland by William Allingham. The illustrations were later the subject of a book by Andrew Lang - The Princess Nobody.http://ufdc.ufl.edu/UF00055810/00001/9j
