Product Description

1460 Pascal Dadd 8 Eyelet Boot

Richard Dadd (1817 – 1886) was an English painter of the Victorian era, noted for his depictions of fairies and other supernatural subjects. He was a visionary who, like many artists, was largely unappreciated in his time. He gained notoriety in the 1960’s, long after his death, when his dream like canvases struck a chord with hippies and flower children.

The Fairy Feller’s Master-Stroke was painted over 9 years while Dadd was a patient in Bethlem mental asylum, and the artwork holds many mysteries. Before he was admitted to the hospital his work was conventional and afterwards it took on a transgressive quality. Perhaps because having no access to the outside world, everything was painted from his memory or imagination.

The painting features characters from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and themes from Romeo and Juliet as well as many, many layered figures and tableaus. The painting was left unfinished when Dadd was transferred out of Bethlem to another hospital.

  • Made with the iconic and comfortable Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole
  • Secured with a durable Goodyear welt
  • Retains classic Docs DNA, like grooved edges, yellow welt stitching and a scripted heel-loop

This style is rare all over the world and we only have limited sizes left. But if this size happens to be your size then it is your Happy Doc Day indeed!

Dadd’s artwork has been printed onto the Cristal Suede upper, a crackled textured leather that gives the effect of a real painted canvas. All the traditional Doc details are here too, yellow welt stitch, air cushioned sole and Air Wair branded heel loop.
