'The Hudson at "Cozzens's"', 1874. Creator: Harry Fenn

'The Hudson at "Cozzens's"', 1874. Cozzen's Hotel at West Point on the River Hudson, New York State, USA: 'Cozzens's, that familiar and great resort of summer pleasure-seekers, perched high on the brow of the cliff that is the most prominent on the western shore for several miles below the Military Academy. Nothing could be more picturesque than the situation of the great building of the hotel, high up in air, looking down upon all the noblest of the river-views. It is several hundred feet above the water...the precipice is here so bold and rugged that the most practised eye is deceived by its appearance of great height...one may deceive himself into the belief that he looks upon some legend-haunted ruin near the Rhine or the Neckar, so picturesquely are the out-lines of this commonplace old structure by the Cozzens's Landing shaped and scarred by time and weather'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1874]

Beach scene, c1946. Creator: Shirley Markham

Beach scene, c1946. Painting done at age 15. 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.
