John Anster Fitzgerald

John Anster Christian Fitzgerald was a Victorian era fairy painter and portrait artist. He was nicknamed "Fairy Fitzgerald" for his main genre. Many of his fairy paintings are dark and contain images of ghouls, demons, and references to drug use. As an artist, Fitzgerald appears to have been largely self-taught. His work was first shown at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in 1845. He also exhibited at the British Institution, the Society of British Artists, and the Watercolour Society. In the late, 1850's he created a series of Christmas fairies for The Illustrated London News. Fitzgerald painted "remarkable fairy pictures of pure fantasy, rarely based on any literary theme." His paintings often use brilliant colors, especially reds, blues, and purples. The final work Fitzgerald exhibited at the Royal Academy, in 1902, was a picture of Alice in Wonderland. Twentieth-century art forgers have been active in creating phony Fitzgerald fairy pictures. The forgeries were discovered when analysis revealed modern pigments.
