Goblin market (oil painting (visual work); Frank Craig (English painter, 1874-1918); 1911; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; 1912-0021-11)
Note: Frank Craig's painting Goblin market, originally exhibited at the Royal Academy, London, in 1911, is a late example of the genre, although fairies, goblins, pixies and elves continued to be the staple of children's book illustration. Craig was renowned as a magazine illustrator in black and white, but his material was mainly drawn from historical and social narratives. The works he exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1895 to 1915 were also mostly genre paintings, portraits, and medieval and modern historical subjects in the manner of his mentor at the Royal Academy Schools, Edwin Austin Abbey. Goblin market would appear to be unique in Craig's output and is the most impressive example of a fairy painting since Richard Dadd’s "The fairy feller's master stroke," 1855–64 (Tate Collection, London) and Richard 'Dicky' Doyle's fairy illustrations half a century earlier.
