WALTER CRANE (English / 1845-1915)

Walter Crane was an important figure in the English Arts and Crafts Movement - a socialist, like William Morris its founder - and was himself both an artist and a craftsman. He was apprenticed to the wood engraver W. J. Linton, and he himself is best remembered for his Japanese-influenced wood-engraved book illustrations, although the engraving of the blocks was done by Edmund Evans, the great colour engraver and printer whose contribution to the art of Walter Crane, Kate Greenaway, Randolph Caldecott and Richard Doyle amounts almost to that of co-creator.
