Who wouldn't want to hitch a ride on this enchanting coach? This whimsical scene comes from an 1870 painting by the talented Richard Doyle, titled The Fairy Queen Takes an Airy Drive in a Light Carriage, a Twelve-in-hand, drawn by Thoroughbred Butterflies. Doyle's imaginative portrayal of the Queen's ethereal journey in a carriage drawn by a fine flutter of butterflies evokes a timeless sense of magic. See this image as an art print!

Richard "Dickie" Doyle (1824-1883) was an exceptionally talented illustrator active during the Victorian era. Born into a highly creative family, his father, John Doyle, was a renowned Irish political cartoonist, and his three brothers were also noted artists. Furthermore, he was the uncle of the famous author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle! He established a distinguished reputation for himself as a prolific and imaginative illustrator, contributing to numerous popular publications of his time. His enduring legacy is primarily associated with his delightful and whimsical fairy and fantasy illustrations, notably in the works of Shakespeare and his renowned collection In Fairyland. A distinctive feature of Doyle's work is the charming depiction of a small bird (a dickie bird) standing on his initials "RD."
