Artist. One of the most important British artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His first painting at the Royal Academy was "The Lady of Shalott" in 1862. He was most acclaimed for his illustrations and designs, and by 1870 he was established as an illustrator of children's books and as a ceramic designer for Wedgwood. By the mid-1870s he was designing wallpapers (for Jeffrey & Company) and tiles (Maw and Company). He is now regarded as one the worlds most important childrens illustrators and his work is highly collectable. He died in 1915, and his funeral was held at Golders Green Crematorium. The ashes were later removed.
