About this objectOn the Road to Fairy-Land, oil on canvas, by Hugh Wallis (1871-1943), about 1904.
This belonged to Barry Parker, one of the planners of Letchworth Garden City.
The inspiration for many artists at this time was the idea of ‘fairyland’, an enchanted and beautiful place of childlike innocence represented here by the two young girls carrying a white flower.
The artist, Hugh Wallis (1871-1943), is better known for his metalwork, but trained as an artist with Herkomer at Bushey.
