Cayley Robinson – Illustrations for Blue Bird 1911

Frederick Cayley Robinson (18 August 1862 – 4 January 1927) was an English painter, decorator and illustrator. He is perhaps best known for his series of paintings for the Middlesex Hospital entitled Acts of Mercy commissioned around 1915 and completed in 1920.

Typically, Frederick Cayley Robinson paintings are deliberately flat compositions in tempera or watercolor, often Symbolism in style, favorite subjects including water scenes, and girls in interiors.

Presenting to you the illustrations from The Blue Bird by Maurice Maeterlinck. First published in 1911 by Methuen & Co.,  London. His illustrations are in the romantic tradition of Burnes-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood movement that you can see a clear reflection in his illustrations for the Blue Bird.
