Bycatch from my snark hunt:
As for The Hunting of the Snark, I think that this is the most important finding of my Snark hunt.
Usually elements borrowed by Henry Holiday from other artists are inconspicuously integrated into Holiday’s illustrations. Here is an exception. The monstrance-shaped tree is just a small element in John Martin’s The Bard. In Holiday’s illustration it is more prominent.
