The Doncaster Cup, 1844. Creator: Unknown

The Doncaster Cup, 1844. Silver racing trophy: The group, which is designed by Mr. Bailey, R.A., and by Mr. Macarthy (as far as the horses are concerned), represents Robin Hood saluting the King [Henry VIII] and his Consort [Catherine Parr], and begging their company in the forest. The figures are very beautifully modelled, the horses full of animation, and the attitudes excellent. The whole is in frosted silver, mounted on a plinth of ebony, on which is inscribed the words, "Doncaster, 1844". This elaborate group has been executed by Messrs. Hunt and Roskell, of Bond-street'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I

Main Gate of St. Bartholomews, Londons Eldest Hospital, c1935. Creator: Donald McLeish

Main Gate of St. Bartholomew's, London's Eldest Hospital, c1935. The Henry VIII gate of St Bartholomew's Hospital (known as Bart's) at Smithfield in the City of London. The hospital was founded in 1123 by Rahere. This gatehouse, designed by John Strong, was built in the early 18th century to commemorate the fact that King Henry VIII did not abolish Bart's along with the priories during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 1530s. The sculpture of Henry in the niche above the gate is the only outdoor statue of him in the whole of London. The hospital is still operating today. From "Wonderful London, Volume 3", edited by Arthur St John Adcock. [The Fleetway House, London, c1935]

Hampton Court Palace, 1951. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

Hampton Court Palace, 1951. Creator: Shirley Markham

Hampton Court Palace, 1951. Hampton Court, former royal palace in Richmond upon Thames, London. Started by Cardinal Wolsey in 1514, the Palace passed to King Heny VIII in 1529 when Wolsey fell from favour. It was extensively altered by Henry. The last monarch to use the Palace was George II. 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
