    The Intermezzo,

    Framed Chromolithograph by WH (Wallace Hester) picturing the Italian composer Pietro Mascagni. In 1890 Mascagni delighted the Italian nation with his exquisite opera 'Cavalleria Rusticana'. Written in response to a competition for young composers in 1888, Mascagni had not actually intended to finally submit his work as he doubted it's quality. The composer's wife found the draft hidden in a draw and, seeing it's worth, illicitly submitted it on his behalf on the final day of the competition. The opera was an instant and unqualified success, earning Mascagni 40 curtain calls on the first night as well as first prize in the contest and receiving a standing ovation such as the Teatro Constanzo in Rome had not seen 'in many years'. The 'intermezzo' from Cavaleria Rusticana was particularly noted for its beauty and charm and has become famous in it's own right, appearing in the soundtrack of the Martin Scorsese film 'Raging Bull'.

    A hard rider,

    Framed Chromolithograph by SPY (Sir Leslie Ward) picturing 'Captain' David Longfield Beatty, infamous soldier and amateur sportsman of the late Victorian period. An Anglo-Irish horse dealer and trainer from County Wexford, Captain Beatty was considered a violent and unpleasant bully. After cuckolding a brother Officer in the 4th Hussars he was dismissed from his regiment although he continued to be referred to as 'Captain' - a rank he had never achieved and held only in an honorary capacity. His natural son, David Richard Beatty went on to become Admiral of the Fleet and the 1st Earl Beatty, Viscount Borodale and Baron Beatty of the North Sea and Brooksby sometimes described as 'Britain's last naval hero'.

    Bill,

    A framed chromolithograph by ELF picturing Robert Henry Foster, lawyer, author, poet, oarsmen and pioneering Romano-British archaeologist. His excavations at Roman Corbridge on Hadrian's Wall were seminal in the fledgling field of British archaeology. He wrote widely about Hadrian's Wall and the Roman presence in his native Northumberland. A keen oarsman, he rowed in the first boat of his college's Lady Margaret Boat Club and in the crew sent to Henley in 1888, winning both the Thames cup and Ladies plate. He later became joint secretary of the Thames Rowing Club in 1892. Starting out with a legal career in mind, he was called to the Bar in 1892, having been McMahon Law Student the year before. However, his writing soon took precedence, to be joined by his archaeological interests.
