The Artists Rifles in Camp, 1884 Featured John Everett Millais Print

The Artists Rifles in Camp, 1884

The Artists Rifles in Camp, 1884.Oil on canvas, signed and dated lower left Godfrey Merry 1884, by Godfrey Pitney Merry, (fl 1883-1915), 1884.In August 1884 the 20th Middlesex (Artists') Rifle Volunteers held their camp at Aldershot. Attendance at these summer camps was voluntary and usually not very well attended, while the long Easter weekend camp was much more popular. Here the volunteers are shown preparing for drill. Some are almost ready, equipped with blanket rolls and Snider rifles, while the soldier buying fish still needs to change his fashionable, but non-regulation, two-tone shoes.Following the formation in 1859 of the Volunteer Force for national defence, the regiment was raised in 1860 as the 38th Middlesex (Artists) Rifle Volunteers. It was so-named as it was mainly composed of painters, sculptors, engravers, musicians, architects and actors. One of the first officers was Frederick (later Lord) Leighton, who was subsequently both Honorary Colonel of the regiment and President of the Royal Academy of Arts. Other famous volunteers include John Everett Millais, William Morris and Holman Hunt.In 1880 the regiment was renumbered the 20th Middlesex (Artists') Rifle Volunteers. The following year it became a volunteer battalion of the Rifle Brigade. In 1908 it changed to the 28th (County of London) Battalion, the London Regiment (Artists? Rifles). Following a number of redesignations, in 1950 the unit became 21st Regiment Special Air Service (TA), the territorial unit of the SAS. Date: 1884

WWI - Propaganda postcard - Kaisers dream bubbles burst Featured John Everett Millais Print

WWI - Propaganda postcard - Kaisers dream bubbles burst

WWI - Propaganda postcard - The German Kaiser's dream bubbles are popping before his eyes. By this point however (late 1914), this rosy picture of futile German successes bursting was still a little premature as the war entered stalemate along the Western front. The representation of Kaiser Wilhelm II is based as a direct spoof on the painting of a boy blowing bubbles ('Bubbles') by John Everett Millais (painted 1885-86). Date: 1914
