The late Mr. J. Augustine Wade, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The late Mr. J. Augustine Wade, 1845. Creator: Unknown

The late Mr. J. Augustine Wade, 1845. Portrait of Irish composer and conductor Joseph Augustine Wade. When a boy, between nine and ten years of age, Mr. Wade left home, presented himself at the gate of Trinity College, Dublin, and, addressing the porter in Latin, according to usage, obtained his admission...He subsequently studied as a surgeon, but ultimately adopted music as a profession...Mr. Wade was a classical scholar, a master of modern languages, an accomplished instrumentalist, and a profound theorist. He was agreeable and courteous in personal character and conversation, generous and frank in disposition; had he possessed more persevering industry, his excellent scholarship and natural genius would have secured to him more substantial results. We lament to learn that he has left a widow totally unprovided for'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Conductor and orchestra, Christmas card, 1952. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

Conductor and orchestra, Christmas card, 1952. Creator: Shirley Markham

Conductor and orchestra, Christmas card, 1952. 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
