Goodbye Old Man - Soldier and dying horse during WWI Featured Fortunino Matania 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

Dropping from a Kite Balloon 1917 Featured Fortunino Matania Print

Dropping from a Kite Balloon 1917

A British observer drops from the car of a kite balloon, attached to the parachute which is hanging over the side of the basket. His colleague has already jumped and is on his way to the ground. The observations balloons were tethered to the ground, but if a sudden squall were to blow up, there was the risk of the cable snapping and the balloon drifting over enemy held territory. In such circumstances, charts and instruments would be thrown out and then each observer in turn would make what was known as 'the drop out'. Hopefully they would land safely, and not behind enemy lines. Date: 1917

Francesco Matania Featured Fortunino Matania Print

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
