'An Allegory', c1820-1825, (1922). Creator: William Blake

'An Allegory', c1820-1825, (1922). 'Epitome of James Hervey's "Meditations among the Tombs"', watercolour dealing with death and grief, inspired by the work of James Hervey (1714-1758). Hervey himself is depicted in the foreground with his back to the viewer, at the foot of a staircase which winds heavenward to God. Other figures represent angels, the dead and the bereaved. Despite the pain caused by early death, the message is that there will be an eventual re-uniting of the parted in heaven. Painting in the Tate Gallery, London. From "Bibby's Annual 1922", edited by Joseph Bibby. [J. Bibby & Sons, London, 1922]

'Torments of Hell', c1185 (1906). Artist: Unknown

'Torments of Hell', c1185 (1906). Hortus deliciarum (Garden of Delights) is a medieval manuscript compiled by Herrad of Landsberg at the Hohenburg Abbey in Alsace. It was an illuminated encyclopedia, begun in 1167 as a pedagogical tool for young novices at the convent. It is the first encyclopedia that was evidently written by a woman. It was finished in 1185, and was one of the most celebrated illuminated manuscripts of the period. In 1870, the manuscript was burnt and destroyed when the library housing it in Strasbourg was bombarded during the siege of the city in the Franco-Prussian War. From Medieval London, Vol. II - Ecclesiastical by Sir Walter Besant. [Adam & Charles Black, London, 1906]
