About the Artist: (1872-1951) UK illustrator, active from about 1895 in a style which derives more from the curvilinear Celtic of William Morris than from the stiffly hieratic Walter Crane, though he did imitate the latter whenever noble subjects were depicted. Books illustrated by HGF include versions of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves (1895) and Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk(coll 1895), The Book of Dragons (1900) by E Nesbit, Wonder Stories from Herodotus (coll 1900) and the anonymous Sir Thomas Thumb, or The Wonderful Adventures of a Fairy Knight(1907). In this last volume HGF showed a sharp, fluent gracefulness even in the depiction of horrors – an example being a giant Spider's attack on Tom Thumb. [JC]
