Margaret Tarrant, 1888 – 1959, was an English artist born in Battersea, London, England. She won several awards while training at the art department of Clapham High School in London, and her career as a freelance artist spanned 50 years.
She designed and created cards, calendars and illustrated children's books including “Peter's Friends” and “All Things Bright and Beautiful”.
Margaret Tarrant's illustrations date from the 1920's, reflecting the enchanting and magical world of fairies, flowers and young children. These delightful, whimsical sketches and watercolour illustrations established Margaret Tarrant as a major talent in one of the great periods of children's illustration.
Indeed, her world of fairies and flowers have been delighting generations of children and adults ever since the first illustrations appeared in the "Fairies and Flowers" series of books, specially commissioned by Medici in the early 1920's. In April 2002, Medici re-published six Fairy books for the first time in 80 years.
