Walter Crane (1845-1915) was an artist and illustrator who, along with Kate Greenaway and Randolph Caldecott, was influential in developing the style of children's illustrated literature popular in England in the late nineteenth century. He is best known for his paintings and illustrations for children's books, but he also produced designs for wallpapers, textiles and ceramics and published important books on design.
