Worried woman, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

Worried woman, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham

Worried woman, c1950. Shirley Markham (1931-1999) studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Central School of Art in London from 1950-1952. The writer, artist, poet, and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) was one of her tutors, and her style of drawing was also influenced by other British illustrators such as Edward Ardizzone, Quentin Blake and Edward Bawden. Markham spent time in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy, and also visited Rome, sketching classical buildings. After graduating from Central, she worked as a graphic designer, producing book illustrations, cartoons for comics, menus and programmes. She gave up her promising career however when she got married in 1957. Middle-class women at that time were expected to devote their energies to bringing up children and running the home, and despite her obvious talent, she lacked the confidence to return to illustration. Her portfolio remained in the family attic for many years, but now her work is published here for the first time

Letter from Thomas Wolsey, Archbishop of York to Dr Stephen Gardiner, February or March 1530.Artist: Cardinal Thomas Wolsey

Letter from Thomas Wolsey, Archbishop of York to Dr Stephen Gardiner, February or March 1530. Letter, written from Esher, shortly after Wolsey's disgrace, to Gardiner, secretary to Henry VIII, making arrangements as to the benefices in the province of York, and appealing to the King's compassion on account of his advanced age and long service. Gardiner, as was frequently the case at this period of his life, is addressed as Mr Stevens'. The late poor Dean of Wells mentioned in the letter was Thomas Winter, Wolsey's natural son. Evidence of the writer's weakness and agitation may be seen in his inability to keep the pen from dotting the paper between the words. From the second series of Facsimiles of royal, historical, literary and other autographs in the Department of Manuscripts, British Museum: Series I-V. (London, 1899)
