"The Globe Theatre, Bankside, 1593"

Original steel engraving, hand coloured.
The Globe Theatre was built in 1599 by actor Richard Burbage in partnership with William Shakspeare and others and many a play by them was performed in its octagonally shaped walls. These walls enclosed a roofless inner pit with three tiers of galleries the upper-most having a thatched roof. It was this that caught on fire when a canon discharged during a performance of "Henry VIII"in 1613. The Globe was rebuilt only to be burnt down again by the Puritans in 1645.

Original etching by Leopold Flameng after Virginie Demont-Breton

"Fisherwoman Bathing her Children"

Original etching by Leopold Joseph Flameng (1831-1891) after the painting by Virginie Demont Breton.
Leopold Joseph Flameng was born in Brussels of French Parents and good friend of F. Seymour Haden. The etching is after a painting by the daughter of one of the greatest French artist in the 1800ís, M. Jules Breton. She was brought up by her father and developed into a recognised artist of great ability which few female artists were able to achieve in that century.
In this composition a Northern Frenchwoman steps from stone to stone returning her children from their morning bath in the sea. There is a strength of the artist's talent as her feet grip the slippery rocks while holding two, struggling children. We cannot but admire the muscular physique of the mother.
Madam Demont-Breton married M.Adrien Demont, a landscape-painter.
Published London c.1885
