Dante and Virgil with three-headed monster, 1951. Creator: Shirley Markham

Dante and Virgil with three-headed monster, 1951. Design for illustration to Dante's "Divine Comedy". 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

Dante and Virgil looking down upon souls in torment in the inferno, 1863. Artist: Gustave Dore

Dante and Virgil looking down upon souls in torment in the inferno, 1863. Italian poet Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) was a great admirer of Virgil, and in his Divina Commedia (Divine Comedy), Virgil accompanies Dante through Purgatory and Inferno. From Inferno, first part of Divina Commedia. Canto XIV: third compartment of the seventh circle where three kinds of violence punished; against God, against Nature and against Art. Unceasing was the play of wretched hands,/ Now this, now that way glancing to shake off/The heat, still falling fresh'. From an edition illustrated by Gustave Dore
