[Shakespeare's Birthplace, Stratford-on-Avon.] 18. [This building is a double two-storey gabled house. The room in which Shakespeare was born overlooks the street. The house once contained sixteen rooms, although now the attic floors have been removed to make room for a museum containing relics and documents relating to Shakespeare. The house is typical of those occupied by well-to-do tradesmen in the sixteenth century. The eastern portion was purchased by John Shakespear, the father, in 1556; the western half, which contains the room in which Shakespeare was born, was not purchased until 1575, although occupied by the family some years earlier. On his death, Shakespeare left the house to his sister, Joan Hart, and it remained in the possession of the Hart family until 1808, when it was purchased by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust In 1857-8 the Trustees carefully restored the building as nearly as possible to its original condition. The house has been a place of pilgrimage for thousands of visitors, and in the room in which the poet was born may be seen many signatures on the walls and windows, including those of Kean, Thackeray, Dickins and Sir Walter Scott. Nearly 150,000 persons visit this buidling annually, including many Americans.]

Simpson, Joseph. 1879-1939. Painter and etcher of portraits and sporting subjects. He was born in Carlisle and studied art at Glasgow School of Art. He became a close friend of D.Y.Cameron and was elected RBA in 1909. Simpson designed covers for Edinburgh publishers and was a prolific designer of bookplates. In 1918 he became an official war artist for the RAF and was stationed in France. Simpson was already forty-five when he took up etching in 1925, at the height of the boom period for the medium. His first twenty or so plates were etched with a gramophone needle and printed by the artist himself on the small press lent to him by a local Carlisle printing firm. His first exhibition of etchings took place in Glasgow at Wishart Brown in March 1926. His friend Brangwyn wrote the catalogue introduction. A second highly successful show was staged in November 1926 by Alex, Reid and Lefevre in London.

The spanish mule. Wilfred Fairclough (1907-1996) was a painter, etcher, watercolourist and teacher who was born in Blackburn, Lancashire. He left school at 14 to work in a mill and then trained as an audit clerk while attending evening classes at Blackburn School of Arts and Crafts, where he passed the Board of Education’s drawing examination in 1930, the year he was appointed part-time teacher at Blackburn. Determination gained him entry to the Royal College of Art’s engraving school from 1931 to 1934, where he excelled, under teachers Malcolm Osborne and Robert Austin. He was a Rome Scholar in Engraving in 1934 attending the British School in Rome from 1934 to 1937. Rome was a favourite subject, later replaced by Venice. He lived at Kingston upon Thames and joined the staff of Kingston School of Art in 1938 and was Principal there from 1962 to 1970, after which he was Assistant Director of Kingston Polytechnic from 1970 to 1972. He spent his wartime service in the Royal Air Force where he worked on models employed in planning the bouncing bomb attack on the Mohne dam. He then spent time in India. Fairclough was elected member of the Royal Society of Painter Etchers and Engravers in 1946 and member of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolours in 1968. He also exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, Walker Art Gallery Liverpool and at the Redfern Gallery, as well as widely overseas. The Contemporary Art Society has bought his work and he is also represented at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and the Victoria and Albert Museum, which has almost 60 watercolours which Fairclough completed during World War II for the Pilgrim Trust’s Recording Britain project.
