Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel

The Clique was a self-described group of Victorian artists founded by Richard Dadd. Other members were Augustus Egg, Alfred Elmore, William Powell Frith, Henry Nelson O'Neil, John Phillip and Edward Matthew Ward.

They have been described as “the first group of British artists to combine for greater strength and to announce that the great backward-looking tradition of the Academy was not relevant to the requirements of contemporary art”.
