Rackham at the height of his creative powers, depicting Snow White and Rose Red, one of the best loved of Grimm's Fairy Tales. The image combines all of Rackham's most characteristic elements: a bad-tempered dwarf in pursuit of gold, sinuous trees and two maidens coming to his aid.
Rackham's depiction of Grimm's fairytales, when at the height of his creative powers. Of Little Brother & Little Sister, Fred Gettings claims, "it would be possible to select any single colour picture in order to demonstrate Rackham's art at its finest".

LITERATURE: Little Brother & Little Sister and Other Tales by The Brothers Grimm (Constable, 1917) p.12.
