This singular structure, situated in Hart-street, Bloomsbury-square, is one of the fifty new churches appointed to be built at the public expense, by the Act of Parliament passed in the tenth year of the reign of Queen Anne; it was consecrated in 1731...it was designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor...its most admired feature is the magnificent portico of eight Corinthian columns...Walpole calls the steeple a masterpiece of absurdity...Above this stage commences a series of steps, gradually narrowing, so as to assume a pyramidal appearance, the lowest being ornamented at the corners by lions and unicorns, and supporting at the apex of the steps, on a short column, a statue in Roman costume of George I...Elsewhere it has been remarked that Hawksmoor has literally made the king the head of the church'.

The Orangery, Kensington Palace, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham

The Orangery, Kensington Palace, c1950. The baroque Orangery, next to Kensington Palace in London, was built in 1704-1705, probably by Nicholas Hawksmoor. It had under-floor heating and was used as a conservatory for delicate plants. 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
