I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each. . . ~T.S. Eliot
Fairy tales and mythic creatures were not uncommon Arts and Crafts subjects. Mermaids, sirens and nymphs were also recurring Preraphaelite themes, particularly with Edward Burne-Jones and later John William Waterhouse, but mythic creatures appear throughout as a mythic backdrop to everyday life.
Fairy tales are the myths we live by. We grow up with them an they shape our values. I'll be putting this in my own guest shower.
The Scottish movement occurred in the late 1880's and 1890's, twenty years after Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co. Jessie Marion King is arguably the best known of the Glasgow Girls and the Scottish Arts and Crafts movement. Best known for her book illustrations, she took her work beyond the traditional painting and drawing expected of women of her day. Jessie also also worked in textiles, jewelry, batik, and pottery.
