About 10 years ago I found out that Henry Holiday's Snark illustrations contained several references to artwork from other artists, father+son Marcus Gheeraerts among them. John Tufail's suggestion (the night sky as a map) made me search for a Gheeraerts painting with a map. pic.twitter.com/6gBJhThN9K

@snark150 is focused on my Snark hunt. But there is bycatch. https://t.co/CxQimK7FKp is my favourite example for such bycatch. Initially I proudly assumed that I was the first one who discovered it. But I think that someone else caught it already in the 19th century. pic.twitter.com/7jOvBu959y

@mahendra_snark, a few years ago it was you who made me aware of the possibility that Henry Holiday might have alluded to that Grünewald painting.

As a German, a didn't know too much about British history, and nothing about Thomas Cranmer. Strangely, it were Henry Holiday and C. L. Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) who made me aware of him in "The Hunting of the Snark". https://t.co/te6VHQ9aVd pic.twitter.com/Oe572tkdS2

"Faiths Victorie in Romes Crueltie" (published by Thomas Jenner, c.1630) is an anti-catholic print showing English Protestant martyrs standing around a fire. Immediately to the right side of the fire, Thomas Cranmer is depicted burning his hand. https://t.co/blgMt1PBm6pic.twitter.com/qPcl7iymtJ

Millais' painting seemst to be quite inspiring: Segments of images by Henry Holiday to Lewis Carroll's "The Hunting of the Snark" (1876) and "The Boyhood of Raleigh" by J. E. Millais (1869). https://t.co/jL4AAA1IYSpic.twitter.com/2oiCVvjIVV
