'To My True Love', American Valentine card, c1910. Artist: Anon Featured Print

'To My True Love', American Valentine card, c1910. Artist: Anon

'To My True Love', American Valentine card, c1910. Cupid dances on grass with naturalised Snowdrops and is playing a lyre of bluebells. Above him are red hearts symbolising love and four-leafed Shamrocks for luck. In the language of flowers the snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis) stands for consolation and the blueball (Scilla noscripta) for kindness. Shamrock or wood sorrel (Oxalis acetosella) is a symbol of Ireland. In Roman mythology Cupid was the son of Venus, goddess of love (Eros and Aphrodite in the Greek Pantheon). The identity of St Valentine is uncertain, the most popular candidates are Valentine, bishop of Terni (3rd century) or a Roman Christian convert martyred c270). St Valentine's Day, celebrated on 14 February, probably replaces the Roman pagan festival of Lupercalia.

'The Boeuf Gras for Paris', 1871 Featured Print

'The Boeuf Gras for Paris', 1871

'The Boeuf Gras for Paris', 1871. Peace, dressed in deepest mourning, leads a prime specimen of cattle to France. The leash is made of olive leaves, a symbol of the new peace following France's war against Prussia in which France had suffered much loss. Prussian troops had besieged Paris and, after more than 130 days and under continual bombardment, Paris had surrendered at the end of January 1871. During the course of the war, French citizens had suffered from famine, and from the beginning of February 1871, provision trains to relieve the suffering had been sent to Paris. The British were in the vanguard of the efforts to supply aid to France. From Punch, or the London Charivari, March 4, 1871.
