EDITORS COMMENTS
This litho print, titled ""Who will rid me of this turbulent priest?", c. 1950" by John Harris Valda, takes us back to a significant moment in English history. The image portrays an intense scene filled with costumes, anger, and weapons that perfectly encapsulate the raw emotions at play. The focal point of the print is King Henry II himself, his face contorted with rage as he utters those infamous words: "Who will rid me of this turbulent priest?". This phrase refers to Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury who had become a thorn in Henry's side due to their conflicting views on church-state relations. The artist masterfully captures the tension and fury in this historical event. The soldiers surrounding the king are depicted with stern expressions and poised weaponry, ready to carry out their monarch's wishes. Through intricate engraving techniques, Valda brings forth not only the physicality but also the emotional turmoil present within each character. This litho print serves as a powerful reminder of how unchecked anger can lead to dire consequences. It delves into themes such as power struggles and moral dilemmas while highlighting one man's fateful decision that would forever alter England's religious landscape. As we gaze upon this artwork from our private collection today, it evokes contemplation about human nature and its propensity for both greatness and destruction.
