Do you believe in fairies? Spirit of the Night (1879) was painted by the British artist John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836-1893). Originally, the painting was accompanied by the follow quote from Percy Bysshe Shelley’s Night: Wrap thy form in mantle grey Star in wrought! Blind with thine hair the eyes of Day; Kiss her until she be wearied out. Then wonder o’er city and sea and land, Touching all with thine opiate wand – Come, long sought! It shows a fairy, dressed in a transparent veil, flying above a seaside village. In Grimshaw’s typical style, the scene is lit up by the moonlight, making the fairy and her veil shimmer. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #FineArts #ArtoftheDay #Grimshaw #BritishArt #BritishPainter #BritishArtist #Fairy #Veil #Magic #FairyTale
