Lot Essay

Holiday was a painter, illustrator, glassmaker, enamelist and sculptor. He studied at Leigh's Academy and at the Royal Academy Schools. His figurative work is heavily influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, as can be seen in the present drawing. In 1890 he founded his own glassworks at Hampstead, producing stained glass windows. His most famous illustrations were produced for Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark.
