Barnard Castle, Durham, c1905

Barnard Castle, Durham, c1905. View of the ruins of the castle overlooking the River Tees. The castle was originally built by the Normans but reached the height of its importance in the second half of the 12th century when it was in the hands of the Balliol family. It later came into the hands of Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, and passed to King Richard III through his wife, Anne, who was the Earl's daughter. The castle fell into ruin in the 16th century

The Colosseum, Rome, Italy, 1951. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Image

The Colosseum, Rome, Italy, 1951. Creator: Shirley Markham

The Colosseum, Rome, Italy, 1951. The ancient roman Colosseum in Rome, Italy, constructed AD 70-82, is the largest amphitheatre ever built. 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
