Queen Louise on the flight to Memel, 5 January 1807, (1936). Creator: Unknown

Queen Louise on the flight to Memel, 5 January 1807, (1936). 'Konigin Luise Auf Der Flucht Nach Memel, 5 Januar 1807'. During the Napoleonic Wars, Napoleon himself occupied Berlin, causing Louise of Mecklenburg-Strelitz of Prussia and the rest of the royal family to flee in the dead of winter. Louise was ill, and they suffered hardships on the way to Memel in the easternmost part of the kingdom. According to one witness, there was no food or clean water, and the king and queen were forced to share the same sleeping arrangements in 'one of the wretched barns they call houses'. From "Bilder Deutscher Geschichte", (Pictures of German History), No.12, cigarette card album. [Cigaretten-Bilderdienst, Altona-Bahrenfeld, Hamburg, Germany, 1936]

Girl on horse fleeing flaming fort, c1941. Creator: Shirley Markham

Girl on horse fleeing flaming fort, c1941. Painting done aged 10. 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.
