Group of women at a table, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham

Group of women at a table, 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.

Marshal Lyautey, French soldier, 1930. Artist: Unknown

Marshal Lyautey, French soldier, 1930. Lyautey (1854-1934) commanded French troops in the invasion and conquest of Madagascar in 1896-1898. He served as military governor of Morocco from 1912 until 1925. He was appointed French Minister of War in December 1916 but resigned three months later over his disagreement with General Robert Nivelle's planned Aisne campaign (the Nivelle Offensive), his resignation precipitating the fall of the government of Aristide Briand. Lyautey was made a Marshal of France in 1921. In his later years he became associated with the French fascist movement.
