Francesco Matania

Chevalier Francesco Matania (1884-1957), operatic singer and professor of singing, pictured in The Tatler at the time of his return to London in 1920 (presumably he had remained in Italy during the war). The Tatler report that Matania, with considerable experience in opera had also made a special study of voice-training and vocal art and had opened a studio at the Wigmore Hall Studios in Marylebone where he gave singing lessons. The brother of the famous artist and magazine illustrator, Fortunino Matania, Francesco in later life would share his brother's work space, giving music lessons in the rooms above the artists' studio at 104, Priory Road, Kilburn, London. Date: 1920

Starlight bent by the Sun's Attraction: The Einstein Theory

This diagram drawn by W. B. Robinson illustrates Professor Einstein's Theory that light is subject to gravitation. The drawing was based on British observers' photographs at the eclipse of the sun on the 28-29th May 1919. Photographs of stars were taken during the total eclipse, which were then compared to other plates of the same region taken when the sun was not in the neighbourhood. Comparing the two plates, the stars on the eclipse plates seemed to be pushed outwards, thus starlight was found to be bent by the sun's attraction. Dr A. C. Crommelin, a British observer working on the project, wrote that 'straight lines in Einstein's space cannot exist; they are parts of gigantic curves.'
