Sidney Paget

1860 - 1908

Sidney Paget is the most famous of all illustrators of the Canon. He illustrated The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Return of Sherlock Holmes for the Strand Magazine. The art editor of the Strand wanted Paget’s younger brother Walter to do the artwork, but the commission was sent in error to Sidney, who used Walter as a model for Sherlock Holmes.
We are proud to present the complete Paget collection. You will find here the following:

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes 104 images
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes 97 images
The Hound of the Baskervilles 60 images
The Return of Sherlock Holmes 95 images

and the portrait of Holmes that never appeared with any of the stories:

Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street
