Time (From Chateau de Chaumont Set), 1512-1515. Creator: Unknown

Time (From Chateau de Chaumont Set), 1512-1515. Pierre Sala, who likely commissioned the set, is portrayed as the richly attired central figure offering a bouquet, a symbol of knowledge, to Eleonore, his daughter. Eleonore is pregnant, revealed by her upturned skirt and the persimmon in her husband Hector's hand. Hector's mother, Marguerite, in dark attire, will wed the widowed Sala in 1519. They appear in front of the royal chateau of Blois. The figures at the right convey Sala's advice to his children. Time (the old man with the staff) with Clio, the Muse of History, standing on his shoulders, is being attacked by a Herculean youth wielding a stick. With this allegory, Sala is explaining that youth is ignorant of the complexities of life and time. The small unicorn at the far right represents the soul. The verse in Old French at the top refers to changing time: One sees Time adorned with green foliage, Sometimes as pleasant as an angel, Then suddenly change and become quite strange. Never does Time persist in one state.

'A Sand Wind on the Desert', 1821. Artist: Denis Dighton

'A Sand Wind on the Desert', 1821. In 1818 George Francis Lyon and Joseph Ritchie undertook an expedition to try to map the course of the River Niger and locate the city of Timbuktu. The expedition lacked funding and support and the selection of Tripoli as the point of departure meant that a crossing of the vast Sahara Desert would be required. The expedition failed to achieve its objectives and Ritchie died from illness. From Narrative of Travels in Northern Africa in the years 1818-19 and 1920 by Captain George Francis Lyon (1795-1832), 1821.
