Sidney Paget

Sidney Edward Paget (4 october 1860 - 28 january 1908) was a British illustrator famous for his illustrations of the Sherlock Holmes stories in The Strand Magazine.

He had two brothers who were also illustrators (and who also illustrated some Conan Doyle's works) : Walter Paget and Henry M. Paget. As a consequence, in 1891, when the Strand editor, George Newnes, asked art director W. H. Boot to find an illustrator for the Sherlock Holmes stories, the latter sent an offer to Walter Paget but the letter arrived to Sidney Paget.

After the death of Sidney Paget in 1908, the editor of the Strand chose various artists to continue the illustrations, and one was Walter Paget for the short story: The Adventure of the Dying Detective (4 illustrations).

Between 1891 and 1904, he did 594 illustrations for Arthur Conan Doyle's works:

  • 356 illustrations for 38 Sherlock Holmes stories
  • 233 illustrations for non-detective stories
