Surreal study, 1952. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

Surreal study, 1952. Creator: Shirley Markham

Surreal study, 1952. Illustration for a poem by TS Eliot. 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

The Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, mid 19th century. Creator: WH Egleton Featured Print

The Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, mid 19th century. Creator: WH Egleton

The Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, mid 19th century. Biblical scene, from Judges 16: 21: But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house'. Samson, having been weakened after Delilah cut off his strength-giving hair as he slept, is captured by the Philistines who blind him by gouging out his eyes. He is then put to work turning a large millstone and grinding grain in prison in Gaza. Here Delilah appears to express remorse for her cruel act. Samson's captors have brought him out of prison to make sport of him during the feast in the Temple of Dagon. Engraving
