    561Louis William Wain [1860-1939]Mrs Tabbys Academysigned bottom rightwatercolour, pen and ink on paper35.5 x 50cm. *2000 - 3000

    Biography Born in Clerkenwell in London on 5th August 1860 to an English father and French mother, Wain was one of six children and the only boy. He did not attend school until he was ten and often played truant. In his late teens, Wain attended the West London School of Art and eventually became a teacher at the school.Louis Wain decided to strike out on his own and became a freelance artist. His speciality was drawing animals and rural subjects and he worked for journals such as Illustrated London News and Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News. In 1883 Wain married Emily Richardson, his sisters governess. Richardson was ten years older than Louis and this caused quite a scandal. She suffered from breast cancer and during this illness she was comforted by their pet cat Peter, who Louis would sketch. Emily died three years later and it is this sad episode that was to define the rest of the illustrators career. He continued sketching cats and his first drawing of anthropomorphised cats was published in an Illustrated London News Christmas issue in 1886. His cats would parody humans while he satirised fashion and popular trends of the day. In his early years, the cats generally remained on all fours and were much more naturalistic in their poses; it was only later in his career that he produced cats walking upright with wide eyes and broad smiles, also wearing clothing. Despite his phenomenal output in both postcards, sketches and book illustrations, his mental state was frail and in 1924 was committed to a pauper ward of Springfield Mental Hospital suffering from schizophrenia. He remained in several different institutions, although he carried on sketching cats for pleasure right up until his death in 1939.

    581Circle of Adam Buck [1776-1852]A miniature portrait of Major General Sir William Blackburne, Indian Army, head and shoulders, indistinctly initialled lower right, on ivory, oval 6.5cm, in a gold frame with guilloche enamel and hair plait reverse, together with a miniature oval river landscape with fashionable pedestrians and horsemen in the foreground, an elaborate and ornate bridge beyond, a town and snow coverer mountains in the distance, 8.5 x 12cms and a group of contemporary manuscript diary extracts and William IV Commission to the rank of Major General in The East Indies

    *800 - 1200

    Blackburne entered the Madras Army as a cadet in 1782 where he received an ensigns commission in 1783 and in 1790 was promoted to lieutenant. Having served in Madura, Tamil Nadu and Tinnevelly and the campaign to defeat Tipu Sultan in 1792, his skill as a linguist led to his being employed as a Maratha interpreter in Tanjore during the enquiry into the right of succession to the Tanjore Raj and later held the post of Maratha Interpreter in Tanjore. In 1801 he was appointed Resident at the Tanjore Court and held that office until he left India in 1823. Blackburne commanded his soldiers to repel two invasions of the local province. In 1804 having exposed fraud and oppression on the part of the native officials in Tanjore, Blackburne was employed by The Madras Government to remodel the local administration both in Tanjore and the native state of Pukukota. Blackburne left India in 1823 and received the honour of a knighthood in 1838, the year before he died. The landscape that accompanies the miniature is, by family repute, a contemporary and related view in India.
