Similar in interests to Fitzgerald, if a tad more unstable, was Richard Dadd (1817-1886): probably suffering from paranoid-schizophrenia he murdered his father in 1843 and spent the last forty-three years of his life in the Bethlehem ("Bedlam") and Broadmoor hospitals, where he was encouraged to paint...

Thanks for these -- lovely! This is a name totally unfamiliar to me. The style of the last painting reminds me Arthur Rackham. Is there any connection?
