Henry Justice Ford a painter and illustrator, was born in London and was educated at Repton and Clare College, Cambridge, Slade and Bushey. He became known for illustrating legend and folklore, particularly the Andrew Lang fairy tales, convincingly combining imaginative fantasy with the everyday.

Ford’s graphic style belongs to the great illustrative tradition going back to Bewick, with the foremost influences of Crane, Edward Burne-Jones and the Pre-Raphaelites. It was Burne-Jones, his friend, who had the greatest influence on his work, especially on his earlier, precisely decorated line drawings; but it is in the later coloured works that he comes closest to the Pre-Raphaelite vision.
