Details: This poster is of The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke, by Richard Dadd. He paid microscopic attention to detail, and used a layering technique producing near-3D results. In order to give context to his work, Dadd subsequently wrote a strange poem by the name of Elimination of a Picture & its subject--called The Fellers' Master Stroke in which each of the characters appearing in the picture is given a name and purpose, including myriad references to old English folklore and Shakespeare.

Richard Dadd (1 August 1817 ¿ 7 January 1886) was an English painter of the Victorian era, noted for his depictions of fairies and other supernatural subjects, Orientalist scenes, and enigmatic genre scenes, rendered with obsessively minuscule detail. Most of the works for which he is best known were created while he was incarcerated in a psychiatric hospital, including his most celebrated painting, The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke. He also created 33 watercolour drawings titled Sketches to Illustrate the Passions. Like most of his works these are executed on a small scale and feature protagonists whose eyes are fixed in a peculiar, unfocused stare.

This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
