  • 05/05/16--04:33: Camille Corot – part 15


  • Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796 – 1875) was a French landscape and portrait painter, as well as printmaker. He is regarded as a pivotal figure in landscape painting; his vast output simultaneously referencing the Neo-Classical tradition and anticipating the ‘plein-air’ innovations of Impressionism.

    For full biographical notes see Part 1, and for earlier works see Parts 1 to 14 also.

  • 05/07/16--04:09: Automotive Art - part 1
  • Note: Same blog, but after 6 years I thought it was time for a little revamp of the design. I think this is easier to read and to navigate. I hope you like it.

    This next series features automotive art and illustration beginning in the 1880s, in the very early days of motoring, through to the mid-1960s. Mainly in poster form, that either advertised motor cars and car-related products, or promoted motor-racing events like Grand Prix.


    It features many famous and iconic brands, as well as some that have fallen by the wayside. Over the series it's interesting to see the development and change in tastes with regard to the design and artwork.

  • 1818 Edwin Landseer self-portrait
    Pencil 20 x 15.5 cm
    National Portrait Gallery London


    Sir Edwin Henry Landseer (1802 – 1873) was an English artist best known for his animal paintings and sculptures. Born in London, the son of engraver John Landseer A.R.A.



    1796 St John the Baptist (after Benjamin West)
    Engraved by John Landseer A.R.A.

    Edwin was recognized early on as an artistic prodigy and at the age of just 13, exhibited at the Royal Academy. He was elected an Associate (A.R.A.) at the age of 24, and a Academician (R.A.) five years later in 1831. In his late 30s Landseer suffered what is now believed to be a ‘nervous breakdown’, and for the rest of his life was troubled by hypochondria and depression, aggravated by alcohol and drug abuse. In the last few years of his life his mental instability became more acute, and at the request of his family, was declared insane in July 1872.


    Landseer’s popularity in Victorian Britain was considerable, and his reputation as an animal painter was unrivalled. Possibly his most famous painting is ‘Monarch of the Glen’ (1851) which was widely distributed at the time as engraved reproduction prints.

    Much of Landseer’s fame, and indeed income, was generated by the publication of engravings of his work, many of them by his brother Thomas Landseer.

    'Alexander and Diogenes by Edwin Landseer c. 1850


    Queen Victoria commissioned several paintings from Landseer – royal pets, then portraits of ghillies and gamekeepers, then in the year before her marriage she commissioned a portrait of herself, as a gift to Prince Albert. Landseer made portraits of the royal babies, and two portraits of Victoria and Albert dressed for costume balls, at which he was a guest himself.

    Royal Collection


    Landseer is particularly associated with Scotland, which he first visited in 1824, and you will see that many of his works are of Scottish subjects.


    In 1858 the government commissioned Landseer to make four bronze lions for the base of Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square, following the rejection of a set of stone lions sculpted by Thomas Milnes. The monument was constructed between 1840 and 1843; the four bronze lions were added in 1867.

    The rejected stone lions were purchased by industrialist Titus Salt, and can still be seen today at his ‘model’ village Saltaire in Shipley, Yorkshire, now a World Heritage Site.

    National Portrait Gallery, London
    Sir Edwin Henry Landseer (1802 – 1873) was an English artist best known for his animal paintings and sculptures. Landseer’s popularity in Victorian Britain was considerable, and his reputation as an animal painter was unrivalled. He is particularly associated with Scotland, which he first visited in 1824, and you will see that many of his works are of Scottish subjects. In 1858 the government commissioned Landseer to make four (now famous) bronze lions for the base of Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square. Edwin Landseer died in October 1873, and his death was widely marked in England. He was buried in St. Paul’s Cathedral, London.

  • Sir Edwin Landseer
    portrait by J.C. Watkins 1870

    Sir Edwin Henry Landseer (1802 – 1873) was an English artist best known for his animal paintings and sculptures. Landseer’s popularity in Victorian Britain was considerable, and his reputation as an animal painter was unrivalled. He is particularly associated with Scotland, which he first visited in 1824, and you will see that many of his works are of Scottish subjects. In 1858 the government commissioned Landseer to make four (now famous) bronze lions for the base of Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square. Edwin Landseer died in October 1873, and his death was widely marked in England. He was buried in St. Paul’s Cathedral, London.

    For fuller notes on Landseer see part 1, and for earlier works see parts 1 - 5 also. This part 6, the final part of a 6 – part series on the works of Edwin Landseer:

  • 06/08/16--05:58: Harry Rountree - part 1

  • Harry Rountree (1878 – 1950) was a prolific illustrator, mainly for children. The son of a banker, Rountree was born in Auckland, New Zealand. He was educated at the city’s Queen’s College, and began work as a lithographer in a commercial studio, designing labels for jam jars and other products.


    In 1901, aged 23, he migrated to London and studied under Percival Gaskell at the Regent Street Polytechnic. The style he evolved there developed fin-de-siècle elements for comic ends, and his use of blocks of flat colour surrounded by thick jagged lines was found suitable for both small-scale illustrations and for large posters.



    He began to contribute to such periodicals as the Humorist,Playtime, and Punch. From 1903 he collaborated with the editor of Little Folks on a very successful series of books. Specialising in animals, he illustrated several classics of children’s literature, including Uncle Remus and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. During the First World War Rountree served as a Captain in the Royal Engineers. His late work included contributions to the Radio Times during the 1930s. A member of the Savage Club, a leading Bohemian Gentleman’s Club, and one-time President of the London Sketch Club, Rountree was late largely forgotten and died in relative poverty in St Ives, Cornwall in 1950.
