Walter crane beauty and the beast
Beauty and the Beast and Other Tales by Walter CraneWalter Crane (1845 - 1915) was an English artist and book illustrator. He is considered, along with Randolph Caldecott and Kate Greenaway, one of the strongest contributors to the childs nursery motif that the genre of English childrens illustrated literature would exhibit in its developmental stages in the latter 19th century. His work featured some of the more colorful and detailed beginnings of the child-in-the-garden motifs that would characterize many nursery rhymes and childrens stories for decades to come. He was part of the Arts and Crafts movement and produced an array of paintings, illustrations, childrens books, ceramic tiles and other decorative arts.

Walter Crane was one of the most important, versatile, and radical artists of the nineteenth century: a painter, decorator, designer, book illustrator, poet, author, teacher, art theorist, and socialist. His work provides an important, decorative alternative to a realist idiom for socialist art. Crane lived and worked among the unity of the arts—so much so that his astonishingly diverse body of work challenged the artistic and political establishment of his time. Aesthetic concerns led both artists to declare allegiance to socialism. Yet Crane was not merely a mere follower of Morris. Born in Liverpool in , Crane studied oil and watercolour painting from an early age with his father Thomas Crane, a painter trained at Royal Academy schools.
