Cinderela pela arte de Arthur Rackham

"In imagination, draftsmanship and colour-blending, his work stands alone. His deep understanding of the spirit of myth, fable, and folklore affords him a transcendent range of expression."
[Arthur Rackham, a Bibliography, by Sarah Briggs Latimore and Grace Clark Haskell, Los Angeles, Suttonhouse, 1936]
"Rackham's illustrations to Grimm, Hans Andersen or Poe show him at his most imaginative and observant of human nature, while his gnomes, fairies and gnarled anthropomorphic trees in Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens or A Midsummer Night's Dream represent his more fantastic side.... He was - and remains - a soloist in front of an orchestra, a player with the responsibility to interpret and add a personal lustre to great works with variations of infinite subtlety and grace."
[Arthur Rackham: A Life with Illustration, by James Hamilton, Pavilion Books, Ltd., London, 1990; published in New York by Arcade Publishing, Inc. as Arthur Rackham, A Biography]
Arthur Rackham revela, nas suas ilustrações dos contos de Grimm e de Hans Andersen a sua perspicácia na observação da natureza humana, recriada de forma extremamente imaginativa. A sua arte em Peter Pan em Kensington Gardens ou em Sonho de uma Noite de Verão, de Shakespeare, povoada de gnomos, fadas, árvores antropomorfizadas e toda a espécie de seres fantásticos, põe-nos em contacto com a sua versão gráfica do maravilhoso. Um grande artista que, com o seu toque pessoal, brindou grandes clássicos da literatura com imagens encantadas.
