Francesco Matania

Chevalier Francesco Matania (1884-1957), operatic singer and professor of singing, pictured in The Tatler at the time of his return to London in 1920 (presumably he had remained in Italy during the war). The Tatler report that Matania, with considerable experience in opera had also made a special study of voice-training and vocal art and had opened a studio at the Wigmore Hall Studios in Marylebone where he gave singing lessons. The brother of the famous artist and magazine illustrator, Fortunino Matania, Francesco in later life would share his brother's work space, giving music lessons in the rooms above the artists' studio at 104, Priory Road, Kilburn, London. Date: 1920

Dreamland with Chevalier Ernest Thorn

Dreamland with Chevalier Ernest Thorn (22nd September 1853 -21st May 1928) was a touring magician and inventor from Austria. After first being an assistant to Bellachini, he made extensive tours of Europe, America and the Orient. He was assisted by his wife Julia. His act 'An Hour in Dreamland' introduced a number of his creations. Among his innovations was the cremation illusion in which his assistant vanished in flames as she stood within an asbestos curtain. Another was "Noah's Ark" in which a model of the Ark, first shown empty, produced various animals, climaxing in the production of Noah's wife. The image shows a black and white photograph of Thorn asleep in a chair surrounded by an illustrative dreamlike scene. This features a woman floating behind him with a flowing dress and a white dove flying beside her. Date: 1800s, 1900s
