The Torch of Truth ~ 1919
I could learn very little about this amazingly beautiful work by Harold Gaze (1884-1963). I've found the images copied at various sources with very little captioning, but all of the images and more are available by exploring this link. You will find brief biographical and bibliographic information here and here and here.
I'm dedicating this post to Thom at The Pictorial Arts, because I know he will appreciate the charm of these images, ranging from the sensual to the innocent to the playful to the plain beautiful.
I will let the illustrations and the scant references stand for themselves. I have worked to improve the images just a touch through careful adjustment and by cropping white edges. The earliest illustrations are dated 1919, and others are dated in the 1920s, 1930s and the 1940s. Look for bubbles, everywhere, fairies, and for faces in the clouds and the trees.
Many of these images are incredibly large so you'll want to click on each one to see the detail.
