Beheading of a Saint, mid 18th century, (1928). Artist: Giovanni Battista Tiepolo

Beheading of a Saint, mid 18th century, (1928). Pen with wash on paper. At one time known to have been in the collection of Herr FW Boehler, Lucerne, Switzerland. Italian Venetian painter and printmaker Giovanni Battista Tiepolo (1696-1770), worked not only in Italy, but also in Germany and Spain. He was commissioned to carry out frescoes in churches and palaces, and was elected President of the Academy of Padua. As well as his large-scale majestic works, he also produced etchings and oil paintings, and is widely regarded as one of the most important artists of the period.

Queen Margaret placing a paper crown on the head of the Duke of York, c1450-c1460 (18th century(?)). Margaret of Anjou (1430-1482), Queen Consort of Henry VI of England with Richard Plantagenet, Duke of York (1411-1460). Their rivalry was a major catalyst for the Wars of the Roses. Richard governed England as Lord Protector during Henry's mental illness in 1453-1454 and held ambitions to take the throne for himself. After a lengthy power struggle, Richard was killed by Lancastian forces at the Battle of Wakefield in 1460. His head was displayed on a pike above Micklegate Bar in York, wearing a paper crown. His son took the throne as King Edward IV the following year after the Yorkists decisively defeated the Lancastrians at the Battle of Towton

Grand avenue approaching the Temple of Karnak, Thebes, Egypt, 1905.Artist: Underwood & Underwood

Grand avenue approaching the Temple of Karnak, Thebes, Egypt, 1905. The soldiers of Assyria in plundering bands have marched down this avenue. Persian hordes have swarmed through it. Alexander's phalanxes have trodden it. The legions of Rome have wrecked it, and the image-hating Moslems have shattered its sculptures, until, war-worn and weather-beaten, these scarred and battered forms show little of their former semblance, and you can hardly find a single ram of which the head is still in place. Stereoscopic card. Detail. From a series called Egypt Through the Stereoscope, text by James H Breasted
