John Anster Christian Fitzgerald (1823 – 1906) was a Victorian era fairy painter and portrait artist.
He appears to have been largely self-taught and he created remarkable fairy pictures of pure fantasy, rarely based on any literary theme. His paintings often use brilliant colors and contain images of fairy, ghouls and demons. His work has been compared to the surreal nightmare-scapes of Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Brueghel.
