Richard Dadd (b. 1 August 1817, in Chatham, Kent, England – d. 7 January 1886, in Broadmoor Hospital, Crowthorne, Berkshire, England) was a Victorian English painter celebrated for his intricate depictions of fairies, mystical subjects, and enigmatic genre scenes. His works, characterized by meticulous detail, often featured Orientalist themes.
