Scene from Costa's opera of 'Don Carlos', 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Isabella Print

Scene from Costa's opera of "Don Carlos", 1844. Creator: Unknown

Scene from Costa's opera of "Don Carlos", 1844. The tragic denouement, which is supposed to take place in the Huerta Reale, or royal garden, at midnight. After singing a parting duet of exquisite tenderness, the guilty lovers, Carlos and Isabella, are surprised by the enraged monarch, Philip, attended by the brothers of the Holy Inquisition...Escape is hopeless - so after outpouring with passionate fervor a story of his wrongs to the King, Carlos snatches a dagger from Philip's side and plunges it in his own. The consternation, produced by this tragic deed, is...immense, and the effect very imposing. The guilty and wretched Isabella, having indulged for some time in a paroxysm of musical sorrow, is rudely laid hold of and borne away to either death or that lingering life which the tender mercies of the sacred fraternity might provide for her, in some convent cell or dungeon'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I

Queens View Featured Isabella Print

Queens View

A short drive from Pitlochry, along a winding tree-lined road, hugging the River Tummel, lies the Queen's View. This famous vantage point looks out over one of the most iconic panoramas in Scotland, directly to the west along Loch Tummel from where, on a clear day, you can sometimes see the mountains surrounding Glencoe by the West Coast. A popular destination since Victorian times, it is often thought that the location was named after Queen Victoria who did, in fact, visit in 1866 . However, it is more widely believed to have been named after Queen Isabella the 14th century wife of Robert the Bruce who used the spot as a resting place on her travels. Queen's View lies at the heart of Highland Perthshire, and it's the area's most popular visitor attraction. Just one look is enough to tell you why

Skinner?s Horse at Exercise, 1840 (c) Featured Isabella Print

Skinner?s Horse at Exercise, 1840 (c)

Skinner?s Horse at Exercise, 1840 (c).Oil on canvas by John Reynolds Gwatkin (1807-1877), 1840 (c). Men of the 1st Bengal Irregular Cavalry (Skinner?s Horse) or 4th Bengal Irregular Cavalry (Baddley?s Horse) display mounted combat skills, including tent-pegging. Skinner?s Horse was the first regiment to combine oriental horsemanship with western cavalry drill. It was trained according to a manual of English cavalry manoeuvres, translated into Persian, with Colonel Skinner?s own additions on musketry drill. This manuscript is preserved in the National Army Museum collections. Tent-pegging involves spearing a wooden tent-peg stuck in the ground with a long lance while riding past it at a gallop. This difficult exercise is still practised by the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment of today?s British Army to demonstrate skilled horsemanship. In the background three sowars (privates) display other skills, such as standing upright on the saddle of a galloping horse or mounting one as it gallops by.These amazing feats are recorded by earlier Indian watercolours depicting Skinner?s irregulars at exercise. However they did not impress Isabella Fane, daughter of General Sir Henry Fane, Commander-in-Chief in India, who saw a performance at Hansi, the regimental headquarters, in 1836, and wrote; ?We were all much disappointed, as at Astley?s [the London theatre and circus] we had seen much better?. She was much more fascinated by Skinner?s wife and daughter-in-law, whom she visited in purdah, both of whom were covered in jewels. Skinner died in 1841 and was buried at the church he had built, St James?s, Delhi. His regiment still lives on today in the Army of India as Skinner?s Horse. Date: circa 1840
