Field Marshal Lord Roberts, Commander in Chief of the forces in South Africa, 1902.Artist: Lafayette

Field Marshal Lord Roberts, Commander in Chief of the forces in South Africa, 1902. Sir Frederick, 1st Earl Roberts (1832-1914) was one of the foremost British military figures of Victorian times. Awarded the Victoria Cross in 1858 for his actions during the Indian Mutiny, Roberts is best known for his march to capture Kandahar during the Second Afghan War of 1878-1880. He was made Baron of Kandahar and Waterford in 1892 and promoted to Field Marshal in 1895. Roberts commanded the reinforcements sent to South Africa in 1900 after the setbacks of the early part of the Boer War. After his successful intervention in the South African campaign, he returned to England to become Commander-in-Chief of the British Army, a position which he held until 1904, when he retired from the army.

Mr. Bannister and Miss Orser, c1780-1825. Creator: Thomas Rowlandson

Mr. Bannister and Miss Orser, c1780-1825. John Bannister was born at Deptford [London], May 12, 1760. He was the son of Charles Bannister, noted English actor, and became famous as a great comedian in his own right. His first appearance was in 1778 at the Haymarket Theater as "Dick" in Murphy's farce, The Apprentice. He was known for his great powers of mimicking other actors. It will be remembered that Bannister first met Rowlandson at Dr. Barrow's Soho Academy. They remained close friends all their lives. They studied together at the Royal Academy, where Bannister showed talent in painting, but later he abandoned art for the stage'. From "The Watercolour Drawings of Thomas Rowlandson from the Albert H. Wiggin Collection in the Boston Public Library" with commentary by Arthur W. Heintzelman. [Watson-Guptill Publications, Inc. New York, 1947]
