Goodbye Old Man - Soldier and dying horse during WWI Featured Print

Goodbye Old Man - Soldier and dying horse during WWI

Goodbye Old Man is a striking image of a soldier bidding farewell to his fatally injured horse. Goodbye Old Man was commissioned by the Blue Cross in 1916 to raise money to help horses on active service.
The artist is Fortunino Matania and it is one of his most famous war-time illustrations. Fortunino Matania (1881 - 1963) was born in Naples.
During and after the war, his work adorned many a history book. During the 1st World War Matania mainly worked for the British magazine The Sphere as their star illustrator, usually producing one full page illustration or more per weekly issue.
He was also employed by the British government and commissioned by individual British regiments. He visited the front several times which allowed him to view wartime conditions at first hand and talk with soldiers about their experiences. From sketches and memory he could then finish a painting, often within a few days.

Lubaantun archaeology - native girl in British Museum, 1926 Featured Print

Lubaantun archaeology - native girl in British Museum, 1926

Believed to be the first of a dying race of Maya indians who has ever visited England: Emilia Vasquez standing by an ancient Maya monolith in the British Museum, where she was introduced to a lecture audience by explorer Mr. F.A Mitchell Hedges on 10th January 1926. Mitchell Hedges was lecturing on the discovery(in which he took a leading role) of the buried Maya city of Labaatun in British Honduras(today Belize). The girl was from the Maya Ketchi tribe of Central American Indians, whose people, as the Illustrated London News romantically put it, "have dwindled to scanty remnant in the wilds of British Honduras, around the ruins of a dead civilization."
10th January 1926
