Scene from 'Anna Bolena', at Her Majesty's Theatre, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Scene from "Anna Bolena", at Her Majesty's Theatre, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Scene from "Anna Bolena", at Her Majesty's Theatre, 1844. Opera by Donizetti, performed in London by Giulia Grisi, Luigi Lablache and Luciano Mariani: No man can better express the tender abandonments of the soul to love, hope, or joy, than Moriani, while, on the other hand, frenzy and despair he can depict with equal truth, but with more thrilling energy...perhaps he was a little enfeebled in voice from previous over-exertion, but his energetic action was still unfailing, which, joined to Lablache's hauteur and Grisi's earnest indignation, formed a tableau of dramatic beauty...The costumes of this scene cannot be too highly extolled for their splendour and accuracy - that of Lablache particularly made him stand forth as "bluff Harry" [King Henry VIII] himself'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

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
