The Sailors Return, 1952. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

The Sailors Return, 1952. Creator: Shirley Markham

The Sailor's Return, 1952. Illustration for "The Sailor's Return" by David Garnett - Neptune in a seashell chariot pulled by sea horses. 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

Fountain of Neptune by Bartolomeo Ammanati and the Loggia dei Lanzi, Florence, Italy, 1927. Artist: Eugen Poppel

Fountain of Neptune by Bartolomeo Ammanati and the Loggia dei Lanzi, Florence, Italy, 1927. The Loggia dei Lanzi was built between 1376 and 1382 by Benci di Cione and Simone di Francesco Talenti to house the assemblies of the people and public ceremonies. The building's name dates from the reign of Grand Duke Cosimo I of Tuscany, when it was used to house his German mercenary pikemen, the landsknechts (lanzichenecchi in Italian). After the construction of the Uffizi Palace at the rear of the Loggia, the Loggia's roof was modified by Bernardo Buontalenti to function as a terrace from which the Medici princes could watch ceremonies in the Piazza della Signoria. From Italien in Bildern, by Eugen Poppel [August Scherl, Berlin, 1927]
