Fairies and madness, why are these subjects so closely intertwined? Nothing exhibits this close relationship more than The Fairy Feller's Master Stroke by Richard Dadd; painted in Bedlam Lunatic Asylum over a period of nine years and still incomplete, what drives artists to fanatically devote their lives to fairies?
Plus, coincidence or fate? Dan reveals a strange connection to Richard Dadd and Siegfried Sassoon, war poet and the final owner of The Fairy Feller's Master Stroke.
