Sir Amédée Forestier (1854 - 1930) was an Anglo-French artist and illustrator who specialized in historical and prehistoric scenes, and landscapes.His drawings are notable for their attention to detail, a consequence of the need to convey a lot of visual information, with little accompanying text, in the popular illustrated magazines of the day.
