EDITORS COMMENTS
This enchanting color illustration, titled "The Last Caravan," is a magical scene created by the talented British artist Alfred Bestall in 1932. Bestall, born in 1892, was a prolific artist known for his humorous cartoons and illustrations, as well as his thirty-year tenure as the artist behind the beloved children's character Rupert Bear. Before Rupert Bear captured the hearts of the public, Bestall produced more than forty color illustrations for The Tatler, a prestigious British magazine. This particular illustration showcases a group of travelers making their way through a woodland area, unaware that they are being spied upon by a centaur and a group of mischievous female imps. The centaur, with his noble features and piercing gaze, watches intently from the shadows, while the imps, with their playful expressions and mischievous grins, peek out from behind trees and bushes. The historical and fantasy elements of this scene transport us to another time and place, where the ordinary world intertwines with the magical and mythical. The vibrant colors and intricate details bring the illustration to life, making it a true work of art that continues to captivate audiences to this day. Bestall's ability to blend humor and fantasy is on full display in this fifth illustration from his series for The Illustrated London News. The imps' antics add a lighthearted touch to the scene, while the centaur's presence adds an air of mystery and intrigue. This illustration is a testament to Bestall's artistic talent and his ability to transport us to fantastical worlds through his colorful and imaginative illustrations.
