Summertime. "Youth at the Prow, and Pleasure at the Helm." - Antique View from 1882

Genuine antique
dated:

1882

Description:

Rare supplement of a man rowing with a woman sitting in the bow and three children at the prow with the monogram of Tom Carrington (1843-1918) at lower left.

The second line of the title, Youth on the Prow, and Pleasure at the Helm, is a line in the poem, The Bard: A Pindaric Ode, by the poet, Thomas Gray (1716-1771) which inspired the oil painting by the English artist William Etty (1787-1832), first exhibited in 1832. In Gray’s poem the apparently bright start to the notorious misrule of Richard II of England was compared to a gilded ship whose occupants are unaware of an approaching storm.

From the original edition of the Australasian Sketcher.

(Tom) Francis Thomas Dean Carrington (1843 - 1918)

T.C. - (Tom) Francis Thomas Dean Carrington (1843 - 1918) Carrington was born in London and studied in Paris before moving to Melbourne in the 1860s and pursuing an art career. He was a cartoonist for Melbourne Punch, and artist for the Australasian Sketcher. He joined the special train accompanying the police to Glenrowan, to cover the last siege of Ned Kelly. His article ‘Catching the Kellys: a personal narrative of one who went in the special train’ was published in The Australasian on Saturday 3 July, 1880. This article, written in the first person, evocatively describes the siege and capture of Kelly at Glenrowan. Carrington’s illustrations of the siege and its aftermath for the Australasian Sketcher are among his most famous drawings. Together, his words and images underpin the way Ned Kelly is remembered in Australian history and cultural mythology.
