  • 11/14/15--06:12: W. Heath Robinson – part 2
  • William Heath Robinson (1872 – 1944) was an English illustrator and cartoonist, best known for his drawings of complicated machines for achieving simple objectives. “Heath Robinson Contraption” is a phrase that entered the language during WW1 in Britain, and later in the United States.


    William wrote and illustrated three highly successful children’s books (The Adventures of Uncle Lubin 1902, Bill the Minder 1912, Peter Quip in Search of a Friend 1933) as well as illustrating numerous others.


    In the run up to WW1, Robinson became known for a series of drawings in magazines such as The Sketch and The Tatler, many of which I will be featuring in this comprehensive look at his work.

    O, when mine eyes did see Olivia first

    Olivia. Well, come again to-morrow; fare thee well

    Practising behaviour to his own shadow

    Present mirth hath present laughter

    That can sing both high and low

    Viola. She pined in thought

    What country, friends, is this?

    Yet you will be hanged for being so long absent

    PLAY BY ME, BATHE IN ME, MOTHER AND CHILD

    "WHAT ART THOU, AND WHAT DOST WANT?" CRIED THE OLD DAME

    SHE HAD STEPPED DOWN INTO THE COOL CLEAR WATER

    DOWN TO THE SEA, DOWN TO THE SEA

    AND PERHAPS HE WOULD NEVER HAVE FOUND HIS WAY, IF THE FAIRIES HAD NOT GUIDED HIM

    HE FELT AS STRONG, AND LIGHT, AND FRESH, AS IF HIS VEINS HAD RUN CHAMPAGNE

    AND HE SWAM ON TO THE BUOY, AND GOT UPON IT

    THEY DID NOT WANT ANY INTRODUCTIONS THERE

    THE WATER-BABIES COME INSHORE AFTER EVERY STORM

    AND THE FISHES TOLD THE WATER-BABIES

    BUT THE FAIRIES TOOK TO THE WATER-BABIES

    THE OTHER CHILDREN WARNED HIM

    AND TOM LOOKED UP INTO HER EYES

    THOU LITTLE CHILD

    "DEAR ME!" SAID THE LITTLE GIRL; "WHY, I KNOW YOU NOW."

    ELLIE WAS QUITE SURPRISED AND SAD

    HE WENT TO THE TOP OF THE WATER AND BEGAN CRYING AND SCREAMING

    AND THEY SAT UNDER THE FLAPDOODLE TREES

    "COME WANDER WITH ME,' SHE SAID."

    SO HE ASKED THE BEASTS IN THE SEA

    AND A VERY GRAND OLD LADY SHE WAS

    AND THEY CAWED AND CAWED

    AND TURNED INTO A WATER-DOG

    THERE WOULD BE A NEW WATER-BABY ST. BRANDAN'S ISLE

    BUT EPIMETHEUS WAS A VERY SLOW FELLOW

    PANDORA

    OLD MOTHER SHIPTON ON HER BROOMSTICK

    YE ARE BETTER THAN ALL THE BALLADS

    HE CAME TO THE GREAT SEA-SERPENT HIMSELF

    HE FOUND GOTHAM, WHERE THE WISE MEN LIVE

    HE HAD A GREAT PAIR OF SPECTACLES ON HIS NOSE

    SO HE TOLD HIM PRETTILY ENOUGH, WHILE THE POOR TURNIP LISTENED VERY CAREFULLY

    AND FAINTED RIGHT AWAY

    HE SAW BEFORE HIM A HUGE BUILDING

    SO SHE TIED THE BANDAGE ON HIS EYES

    THE FIRST THING WHICH TOM SAW WAS THE BLACK CEDARS

    I HAVE BEEN SITTING HERE WAITING FOR YOU MANY A HUNDRED YEARS

    THE END

    William Heath Robinson (1872 – 1944) was an English illustrator and cartoonist, best known for his drawings of complicated machines for achieving simple objectives. “Heath Robinson Contraption” is a phrase that entered the language during WW1 in Britain, and later in the United States.


    William wrote and illustrated three highly successful children’s books (The Adventures of Uncle Lubin 1902, Bill the Minder 1912, Peter Quip in Search of a Friend 1933) as well as illustrating numerous others.


    In the run up to WW1, Robinson became known for a series of drawings in magazines such as The Sketch and The Tatler, many of which I will be featuring in this comprehensive look at his work.

    John James Audubon by John Syme 1826 oil on canvas 90.2 x 69.8 cm The White House, Washington, DC
    John James Audubon (1785 - 1851) is perhaps the most renowned wildlife artist in America, universally acknowledged by both art and natural history museums. He was born in 1875 in Les Cayes, Santo Domingo (now Haiti).

    From his father's Pennsylvania estate, Audubon made the first bird-ringing experiments. After failing in various business ventures, he concentrated on drawing and studying birds, which took him from Florida to Labrador. His extraordinary four-volume The Birds of America, first published in London in 1827, was a 12-year enterprise that exponentially increased the knowledge of American ornithological and natural history.

    Subsequently, Audubon embarked on a companion project for mammals, The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America.


    Arctic Hare c1841 pen and black ink and graphite with watercolour and oil paint on paper 61 x 86.9 cm National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC

    This project occupied him from 1830 until his death in 1851. Of the approximately 150 artworks undertaken for this project, nearly half were completed by his son, John Woodhouse Audubon (1812 - 1862).

    The images featured in this series are mainly hand-coloured etchings and aquatints, with a few original watercolours here and there. (You can click on individual images to enlarge them).
