The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up

Day 2 of Colourisation Project – May 9th

The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up turned 154 on May 9, 2014. Who hasn’t heard of Peter Pan made famous by Scottish author and dramatist, James Matthew Barrie? Though he was a prolific writer, Barrie’s Peter Pan –  a “fairy play” about an ageless boy – overshadowed all his other works.

J.M. Barrie is the second subject in my series of colourisations. The author of this image is unknown but it is thought to have been taken around 1890 when Barrie would have been 30 years old. Take away that hefty moustache and you can see the ageless quality of the author himself.
