    Randolph Caldecott's father was originally a hatter and tailor but later developed an interest, and second career, in accountancy. It was he who decided that Randolph would make his career in banking. At the age of 15 Randolph Caldecott started work as a clerk in Whitchurch (Shropshire) office of Whitchurch & Ellesmere Bank, where he learned the rudiments of banking. In December 1866, at the age of 20, Caldecott applied for a position with Manchester & Salford Bank, a much larger and flourishing bank. He was interviewed on Christmas Eve, and started work early the following year at the bank's head office in Mosley Street, Manchester. He progressed well, enjoying a steadily rising income, and was commended by his superiors for having 'worked well'. He was also popular with his fellow clerks, one of whom later recalled that he came 'like a ray of sunshine into our life, and brightened the drudgery of our toil with his cheerful humour'. Caldecott himself recollected later that – in his...

    From an early age Caldecott showed artistic talent. He won a prize for drawing while at school in Chester, and in 1861, when he was 15 years old, the Illustrated London Newspublished his drawing and written account of a major fire at a railway hotel in Chester. Caldecott's move to Manchester in 1867 allowed him to develop his skills further and broaden his range of subjects. Indeed, his application to Manchester & Salford Bank may have been motivated less by a wish to improve his banking career prospects than by the hope that city life would open up new artistic opportunities for him. At the bank, Caldecott drew caricatures of colleagues and customers on the backs of envelopes or scraps of paper. He attended evening classes at Manchester School of Art and some of his drawings were published in local weekly papers, including Will o' the Wisp and The Sphinx. He joined the Brasenose Club, established in 1869 for those with literary, scientific, musical or artistic interests, and in tha...

    In 1872 Caldecott moved to London. He initially worked as a news reporter, and was soon supplying stories and illustrations to journals such as the Illustrated London News, The Pictorial World, Punch and The Graphic. He studied briefly at the recently-founded Slade School and set up his own studio at his lodgings in Great Russell Street, opposite the British Museum. He made friends with a number of other artists, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais and Frederic Leighton. His style of pen and ink drawing, featuring thin lines and large white spaces, was particularly suited to printing using wood engraving, and he became the illustrator of a considerable number of books. He sometimes wrote the accompanying text himself, but more often collaborated with authors, including Washington Irving, Juliana Horatia Ewing, Mrs Frederick Locker and Frederick Marryat. Washington Irving’s Old Christmas (1875) and Bracebridge Hall(1877) set a new standard for quality of popular bo...

    In 1879 Caldecott moved to a house near Kemsing in Kent. While living there he met Marian Harriet Brind, daughter of Frederick William Brind of Chelsfield. They were married on 18 March 1880, and in 1882 moved to a small farm at Frensham near Farnham in Surrey. In the same year, he also bought a house in Holland Street, Kensington, where he set up a studio. From then on, Caldecott divided his time between London and the country. Caldecott had suffered from rheumatic fever as a child, and his health remained fragile for the rest of his life. He often spent the winter months in warmer climes, particularly in the Mediterranean. He was noted by contemporaries for his cheerful and witty character and his charm, attributes which also apply to his artistic work. Although his health was often a cause of concern to his friends, he refused to draw attention to its effects or allow it to stop him working. Frederic Leighton said of him that 'his humour was as quaint as it was inexhaustible, and...

    In October 1885 Caldecott and his wife sailed for America on a trip intended partly to improve his health and partly to provide material for sketches of American life for The Graphic. After an arduous Atlantic crossing they met with unseasonably cold weather as they travelled down the east coast of America. Early in 1886 Caldecott developed acute gastritis. He died at St Augustine, Florida, on 13 February 1886, at the age of 39. He was buried in the Evergreen cemetery, St Augustine, but his friends also paid for a memorial, designed by Sir Albert Gilbert, in St Paul’s Cathedral, London. A plaque was placed in the cathedral in Chester, Caldecott's home town. In 1888 an exhibition of his work was exhibited at the Brasenose Club in Manchester. Many of Caldecott's books were reprinted in large print runs after his death. He continued to influence the work of later illustrators, including Beatrix Potter and EH Shepard. Since 1938 the Caldecott Medal, named in his honour, has been awarded...
