The Great Sacrifice by James Clark, WW1 Featured Print

The Great Sacrifice by James Clark, WW1

The Great Sacrifice by James Clark, originally published in the 1914 Christmas number of The Graphic. Depicting a dead soldier on a battlefield with an ethereal image of Christ on the cross shining down on him, it was one of the most popular images of the war. Stephen Paget observed in The Cornhill Magazine that this Graphic cover has turned railway bookstalls into wayside shrines; the one and only picture of the war, up to now, which says what most needs to be said on canvas. Date: 1914

In the Street of Abundance at Pompeii by Matania Featured Print

In the Street of Abundance at Pompeii by Matania

A special reconstruction series of ancient Pompeii by Fortunino Matania for The Sphere. Here, in the Via Dell' Abbondanza, a wealthy street in the city, is a sacrificial shrine, where anyone, accompanied by a priest and an aruspice (the man who knew how to read the prediction in the burning flesh), could offer up a sacrifice to the twelve divinities. In Matania's reconstruction, we see the worshipper pouring wine onto the hind legs of a lamb so as to send a pleasant perfume to the gods, whilst the priest recites the necessary incantations. These shrine is painted with figures of the twelve divinities, under which there is a frieze of gladiators and the lower part of the wall is decorated with the familiar snake device, indicating the near existence of a chemist's shop. Date: 1924
