Woman watering plants, c1951. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

Woman watering plants, c1951. Creator: Shirley Markham

Woman watering plants, c1951. Illustration for "The Boarding-House" by Charles Dickens. 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

Joan of Arc, 1902. Artist: Patten Wilson Featured Print

Joan of Arc, 1902. Artist: Patten Wilson

Joan of Arc, 1902. Joan of Arc, 15th century French patriot and martyr. Claiming divine inspiration, Joan of Arc (c1412-1431) persuaded Charles VII to declare himself King of France (at the time France was ruled by England under the terms of the Treaty of Troyes signed in 1420). Charles gave Joan authority over the French army at the Siege of Orleans in 1429, which proved to be the turning point in the Hundred Years War in favour of the French. Joan was captured at Compiegne in May 1430 by the Burgundians, who handed her over to the English. Tried on a charge of heresy, Joan was executed and martyred in 1431, but Charles VII went on to regain all of France from the English, with the exception of Calais. After a work by Patten Wilson (1869-1934). From A Child's History of England by Charles Dickens [J. M. Dent & Co., New York, 1902]. (Colorised black and white print)
