Woman with bow, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham

Woman with bow, c1950. Fashion illustration. 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

Farmer from Nebraska in emergency camp for migratory work... Calipatria, Imperial County, CA, 1939. Creator: Dorothea Lange

Farmer from Nebraska in emergency camp for migratory workers during pea harvesting says "I put mine in what I thought was the best investment -- the good old earth--but we lost on that, too. The finance company caught up with us, the mortgage company caught up with us. Managed to lose twelve thousand dollars in three years. My boys have no more future than I have so far as I can see ahead." He had been on the road a little less than a year. Calipatria, Imperial County, California
