"The greatest imaginative artist since Blake" -Hannen Swaffer
Fantasy illustrator Sidney Sime (1867-1941) enjoyed popularity during his lifetime, collaborating with Lord Dunsany on many of his works, including the Book of Wonder and the Sword of Welleran. They became firm friends and each gained inspiration from the other's work. Sime is now sadly neglected, though as you can see from his works, he captured a spirit of fantasy that few others have even caught a glimpse of. HP Lovecraft said of Sime: "There's something those fellows catch - beyond life - that they're able to make us catch for a second. Doré had it. Sime has it." Later, Arthur C Clarke, said: "No-one has ever captured the spirit of fantasy more perfectly than Sime." Enjoy this selection of Sime's works.
