Capture of the Argentine Squadron, off Monte Video - from a sketch by a correspondent Featured Print

Capture of the Argentine Squadron, off Monte Video - from a sketch by a correspondent

Capture of the Argentine Squadron, off Monte Video - from a sketch by a correspondent, 1845. French and British ships attacking the Argentinian fleet off the coast of Montevideo: HMS Mclampus; Argentine Brig; HMS Satellite; Argentine Schooner; HMS Eagle; Argentine Schooner; HMS Comus; Argentine Admiral; Desaix, French Brig; Argentine Corvette. They got under way about 3 o'clock, P.M., and were immediately followed by the Desaix, French brig; and H.M.S. Comus and Satellite. The Comus fired a shot ahead of the Argentine Admiral's brig; and the Satellite fired several into the corvette. As soon as the Comus fired again, and the Satellite was fast coming, the Admiral struck his flag, and the corvette followed his example: several shots hit the two vessels, but no material damage was done. The two schooners and the other brig then struck their colours, which ended the affair'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Rifle range at a fairground, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham

Rifle range at a fairground, c1950. 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
