Another rare bit of culture on Cloggy’s blog. Just happened across this on a blog about unmanned drones !! and as Roy Lichenstein is one of my favourite artists and I have actually seen this in the Tate gallery (before it split into Tate Ancient & Modern) i just had to post it.
When I saw this untitled in an article on a private collection going on show in Nottingham I figured it was a Patrick Caulfield and was pleased to find that I was right. He and Allen Jones are my favourite Pop Artists.

Camille Corot - The Environs of Paris [1860s]
Cloggy:— I love Corots. Once saw them described as little jewels and they are.

No not the ladies from Globe Worsted disporting themselves in the mill dam at lunchtime, though I could swear that is Nelly Bickerdyke with her eyes peeping just above the water, but “Sea Nymphs at a grotto” by Gaston Bussiere who I had to find out about after my reblog.
GASTON BUSSIERE (1862-1929)
Cloggy:—Don’t know who Gaston Bussiere is but this picture is definitely ‘Vanity’ by Frank Cadogan Cowper and the last time I saw the original it was hanging in The Royal Academy in London.
Not all the children in Walter Molino’s pictures are snatched from the jaws of death and some reap the result of not keeping out of derelict buildings as above
or playing with unexploded bombs
Very good Life Lessons.
"Little Girl Saved By Engine Driver Frank Meyers"
is the title of this picture though I am unable to trace the incident it is based on.
I think it unlikely that an engineman would have time, on spotting the child on the track, to open the cab door, climb down the ladder and get onto the front of the loco in time to snatch the child off the track.
Walter Molino, the artist, specialises in children being snatched from the jaws of death ——
