Art for Inspiration: A Fairy Tale by Arthur Wardle

"A Fairy Tale" by Arthur Wardle (1860 - 1949)

Wardle's work is meant to illustrate this excerpt from "The Bridal of Triermain," a poem by Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832), which goes:

All seem'd to sleep -- the timid hare
On form, the stag upon his lair,
The eagle in her eyrie fair
Between the earth and the sky.
But what of pictured rich and rare
Could win De Vaux's eye-glance, where,
Deep clumbering in the fatal chair,
He saw King Arthur's child!
