Ian Beck


One long, hot summer Lily and Rose are playing out amongst the garden of a large country house, when they spot a strange light. It must be fairies! They are determined to catch the fairies and sneak out at sunset to find them. However, things aren’t always what they seem – will Lily and Rose be disappointed? Or perhaps what they find is magical in its own way? Based on the world-famous John Singer Sargent painting, Carnation, Lily, Lily Rose, Ian Beck brings the subjects to life and reveals an inspirational world behind the painting.
