    King George V Silver Jubilee – George Charlton

    A signed, oil on canvas view of the Royal procession along the Embankment during the Silver Jubilee of  King George V in 1935. The 1902 State Landau carrying the King and Queen Mary is shown passing between the steps of the City of London School and the River Thames. This stretch of the Thames, originally known as Blackfriars Reach, was renamed King’s Reach in honour of the Sovereign in his Jubilee Year. The form of Joseph Cubitt’s historic Blackfriars Railway Bridge of 1864 (demolished 1985) can just be made out between the road bridge of 1869 and the rail bridge of 1886 by John Wolfe Barry and Henry Marc Brunel. The scholars of the City of London School can be seen waving and craning to catch a glimpse of the Royal couple as the carriage processes from St Pauls Cathedral to Buckingham Palace.  The City of London School departed this site at Blackfriars in 1984 and the former school building now houses the British and European headquarters of the Financiers J.P. Morgan.

    Rare example of a reversed engraving on glass, depicting Caroline of Brunswick, made c1821

    Reverse glass printing is a process whereby a print is transferred to a sheet of glass, varnished and coloured to resemble an oil painting.

    The Prince of Wales, son of King George III was introduced to his potential bride, Caroline of Brunswick out of need for money as he was in great debt. Caroline famously, short, fat, ugly and never changed her undergarments, and rarely washed. Her body odour was overwhelming.

    Caroline was very popular with the London public whilst King George was not. Every day when attending the House of Lords her coach was escorted by the cheering mob. George IV’s Coronation was to be the 29th April 1821 but Caroline was told that she would not be taking part in it. Undaunted Caroline arrived at the door of Westminster Abbey on the day demanding to be admitted, but the doors were slammed in her face.

    She died 19 days after her frustrated attempt to get into the Abbey and was buried in Brunswick, and on her coffin was inscribed… ‘CAROLINE THE INJURED QUEEN OF ENGLAND’.

    Autumn by Abraham Rattner, Verve Vol. 1 / No. 3.

    The Verve Review was a purposefully luxurious. It ran from 1937 to 1960, but with only 38 editions available, due to the high degree of design and editorial work dedicated to each issue. Each edition contained unique lithographic prints, commissioned by the editor, and each cover a double-page lithograph elaborated by one of the artists contained within. It was the brainchild of its editor Stratis Eleftheriades, a Greek National who moved to Paris in the early thirties to take part in the growing Modernist movement, writing under the name of Teriade.
