Murder, insanity and painting; the story of Richard Dadd is a fascinating one.



Nicholas Tromans, author of The Artist and the Asylum, heads behind the scenes at both the Tate and Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam museum to tell us the tale of The Fairy Feller’s Masterstroke and the rarely seen version Dadd painted in watercolour, Songe de la Fantasie, both of which Dadd painted whilst living inside asylums.
