Worried woman, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

Worried woman, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham

Worried woman, c1950. 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

The Prisoners, 1916. Artist: Louis Raemaekers

The Prisoners, 1916. Plate 33 from The Great War: A Neutral's Indictment by Louis Raemaekers. The Dutch graphic artist Louis Raemaekers (1869-1956) produced fiercely anti-German cartoons during the First World War. The Germans offered a substantial reward for him, dead or alive, and the Dutch government, under pressure from Germany, placed Raemaekers on trial on a charge of endangering Dutch neutrality. He was acquitted, but fled to England because of the bounty on his head

After the disastrous defeat of the French at Sedan and the capture of Napoleon III, the Prussians surrounded Paris on 9 September 1870.
