Finally got along the the Artist and Empire exhibition at Tate Britain yesterday. Fripp's Isandhlwana is on display following cleaning and looks pristine. It is hung at eye level (unlike at the NAM where it was quite high on a wall) so you can get to within about 12 inches of it - it is hugely impressive. I took my 9 year old grandson so a long discussion about Zulus resulted! There is a wide range of material on display from museums and galleries all over the country across the whole subject of empire - it's not just about the Zulu War or the military, so don't be mislead. Very enjoyable.

That sound fantastic, did you get to see the painting 'Remnants of an army' ? I have always wanted to see the originall painting, I have seen some pretty good copies but nothing beats original work.

Yes, Butler's "Remnants of an Army" is there, together with "Last Stand of the 44th at Gundamuck', "Last Stand of Major Allan at Shangami" and the "Death of Gordon". You probably won't see them in one place again. If you cannot get to London before it closes in April I thoroughly recommend the catalogue which is a work of art in itself. It weighs a ton though!

I didn't know if anyone else here watches Ripper Street on Amazon?  Inspector Reid has a black and white Fine Arts Society lithograph of Butler's Remnants of an Army on the wall of his drawing room.

Steve,

Sounds like a trip to the Tate in order for next week!

The immortal Shangani Patrol - they were men as their fathers before - I looking forward to it already.

I saw it many years ago, they were re painting the walls and it had been taken down, casually leant against a passage wall. Being in that position though, close confines, got me looking at small sections instead of the overall. The vignette to the right hand side half way up says everything you need to know about the battle. The brutality of an isolated soldier fighting of attackers while being stabbed from behind while at his feet two Zulus strip another soldier. Its brilliant.

Cheers

Hi John, enjoy. I am a great fan of Ripper Street because of my East End family connections. They had lived in a tenement that backed on to the site where one of Jack's victims was later discovered. And my 3xG Grandad ran a small greengrocers shop opposite the old Leman Street Police Station.

Here is the Fripp being restored prior to the exhibition. Just look at the damage at the bottom! Only a few weeks remaining.
