Art Exchange:

Today's theme for with Art UK is 👨‍🌾 and our pick is "Prize Sheep" by 👨‍🎨Willim Henry Davis 📍Museum of Lincolnshire Life

For nineteenth-century landowners, counting a prize-winning animal amongst your herds was a symbol of status. Sometimes a painting of the beast in question would be commissioned; presumably, that is the case with this formidable sheep, which has been well-stuffed with turnips. 🐑

Today's theme for with Art UK is in Art 🏙 and our pick is "North Bastion, Tower of London" by 👨‍🎨William Herbert Hampton 📍Imperial War Museum London

This striking painting by William Herbert Hampton depicts bomb damage suffered by the Tower of London during the Blitz. It shows that even a building which has stood in London for almost 1000 years isn’t immune to the disasters and changing circumstances which affect the city.

Skating on frozen canals was a popular winter pastime in the Medieval and Early Modern Low Countries ⛸

The men with sticks on the right-hand side of the painting are playing a game called ‘IJscolf’, which resembles a cross between the modern sports of golf and ice hockey 🏒

At first, this snowy woodland scene by Julian Perry appears perfectly peaceful and tranquil ❄

Yet its title reveals that this is no natural pond but a reminder of violent conflict: a crater from a V-2 rocket, a long-range bomb which killed thousands in Britain during WWII.

This painting of Cú Chulainn illustrates an episode from the Táin Bó Cúailnge, one of the most famous Irish legends. The artist was George William Russell, a noted Irish Nationalist associated with W.B. Yeats; Cú Chulainn was a crucial symbolic figure in early Irish Nationalism.

Today's theme for with Art UK is ❄ and our pick is "The Orphans" by 👨‍🎨Philip Hermogenes Calderon 📍Calderdale Council

Melancholy scenes of orphaned youths were popular with Victorians, especially in cold and snowy settings. In this heartstring-tugging piece from Philip Hermogenes Calderon, an older sister plays the harp, probably to raise money for herself and her sibling.

Lesage’s novel Gil Blas is an example of the picaresque genre, telling the tale of the eponymous rogue’s rise through Spanish society. Highly popular when first published, both it and Lesage have now lapsed mainly into obscurity.

This Remembrance Day, we remember the fallen. The artist of this piece, James R Wallace Orr, was a fireman in London during the Blitz.

Want to know what a femme fatale looks like? Herod’s Birthday feast by Edward Armitage shows you in spades. It’s a bravura depiction of Salome dancing before her stepfather to trick him into promising her anything she wanted, which turned out to be John the Baptist’s head - on a plate. Appalled but trapped, he had to comply.

🖼Keats Listening to a Nightingale on Hampstead Heath

Keats is one of the most renowned poets to ever write in English, known for works such as The Eve of St Agnes and Ode to a Nightingale. Yet his career was brief, cut short by his tragically young death from tuberculosis at the age of only 25.

: 30th October 1751 – Birth of Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Richard Brinsley Sheridan ranks amongst the most famous British playwrights of the eighteenth century, with some of his works still regularly performed to this day.

In 1775 Sheridan brought his first play to the stage, The Rivals. The play was very poorly received on its opening night, but Sheridan quickly rewrote and recast it and staged the new version less than two weeks later. This time it was an immediate success, launching Sheridan into the limelight.

He followed it up with a series of other well-received plays, his most famous being The School for Scandal in 1777.

Towards the end of the eighteenth century, Sheridan would largely abandon playwriting, instead coming to focus on politics. He became the Whig MP for Stafford in 1780, allegedly due to bribery. Sheridan applied his talents for wit and drama in Westminster, becoming well-known for his speeches and perhaps even more so for his sharp responses to the speeches of other members.

He died on 7th July 1816. His funeral was well-attended, and he was buried at Poet’s Corner in Westminster Abbey.
