Jesters, c1955. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

Jesters, c1955. Creator: Shirley Markham

Jesters, c1955. Jesters and fools through the ages. Page from "Marvelman" comic. 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

Punch, 1874-1876, (1946). Artist: Edouard Manet

Punch, 1874-1876, (1946). The face of Punch (or Polichinelle in the Commedia dell'Arte), resembles that of the conservative president of the Third Republic, Patrice de MacMahon (1808-1893). In May 1871, MacMahon led the troops of the Versailles government against the Commune. In the bitter fighting known as La Semaine Sanglante ('The Bloody Week'), the Commune was crushed, with many communards being executed. From The Etchings of the French Impressionists and Their Contemporaries, by Edward T. Chase. [The Hyperion Press, Paris, 1946]
