The North-West Passage, 1874, (1901). Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The North-West Passage, 1874, (1901). Creator: Unknown

The North-West Passage, 1874, (1901). An old seaman looks thoughtful as he considers the danger of an expedition to find the sea route round North America via the Canadian Arctic. Many such expeditions had ended in failure and death. His daughter reads from a log book as she holds his hand. On the table is a map, behind him hangs the portrait of a ship's commander, and flags lean against the wall: evidence of his seafaring days. After the 1874 painting by John Everett Millais, in the Tate Gallery, London. From "The Illustrated London News Record of the Glorious Reign of Queen Victoria 1837-1901: The Life and Accession of King Edward VII. and the Life of Queen Alexandra". [London, 1901]

Woman holding a purse, c1952. Creator: Shirley Markham

Woman holding a purse, c1952. 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

Verginius left his beautiful young daughter Verginia in the care of her nurse, c1912, (1912). Artist: Ernest Dudley Heath

Verginius left his beautiful young daughter Verginia in the care of her nurse, c1912 (1912). In 452 the senate of Rome appointed a commission to write down a code of law, which was led by Appius Claudius. Abusing his position of authority, Appius Claudius tried to force the daughter of a plebeian named Lucius Verginius into slavery, prompting her father to kill her. The scandal caused a popular uprising, resulting in the commission's resignation. From The Story of Rome, by Mary MacGregor. [Thomas Nelson and Sons Ltd., 1912]
