Valentin Serov (1865 - 1911)

Serov was, in my very humble opinion, the greatest ever Russian portrait artist.

Sir John Tenniel (1820-1914)

Was a political cartoonist at Punch magazine for most of his creer but is known for his superb illustrations for Lewis Carrolls  - ` Alices Adventures in Wonderland`, `Through the Looking Glass and what Alice found There` and `Jabberwocky`. I never tire of looking at them, grotesque, funny and straight out of a wierd dream world, perfect for those amazing stories.
