Toby by Harry Vernon

I have taken the liberty of calling this dog ‘Toby’, as opposed to ‘Punch and Judy puppet’, since this is the name usually given.

Toby was made by Harry Vernon (c1920-30), and is now owned by Peter Blake. He was part of a marvelous Barbican exhibition, entitled ‘Magnificent Obsessions’ (2015), which showed stuff collected by artists.

The square was cut from an exhibition leaflet, and the photograph was taken by Justin Piperger.

Ethel Bartlett by Laura Knight

Portrait of Ethel Bartlett (1896 – 1978), pianist. Born in London in 1896. Atkinson Art Gallery Collection.

Painted by Laura Knight (1877 – 1970), who has a blue plaque on her house in St. John’s Wood. In 1936 she became the third woman elected to the Royal Academy. In 1945 she asked to be sent to record The Nuremberg Trials.

The square is cut from a leaflet (*see below) for the exhibition ‘Laura Knight: A Life In Portraits’, National Portrait Gallery, 2013. Brian Sewell said, “This shoddy little show is a disgrace”.
