Richard Caton Woodville

WOODVILLE, Richard Caton Born London 1856; died there 1927. Woodville was the most prolific battle artist of the nineteenth and early twentieth century in Britain, producing countless oil paintings and drawings, many for the Illustrated London News. As was the case with several history painters of the Victorian period, he studied at Dusseldorf sometime with Wilhelm Camphausen, the great German military painter, and later in Paris. He experienced was first-hand in Albania and Montenegro towards the end of the Russo-Turkish War in 1877, and later in Egypt during the war of 1882. During the latter conflict, he made numerous sketches and obtained photographs of the trenches at Tel-e-Kebir for his friend, the French military artist, Alphonse de Neuville (q.v.) who had been commissioned to paint a scene of the battle. The fruits of both their labours were shown at the Fine Art Society in 1883, Woodville, exhibiting The Moonlight Charge at Kassassin. In 1884, Woodville exhibited by Royal Command, another picture relating to the Egyptian War. The Guards at Tel-e-Kebir (Royal Collection). His first Royal Academy picture exhibited in 1879, was entitled Before Leuthen, Dec. 3rd, 1757. Thereafter, he was a frequent exhibitor at Burlington House, showing no less than 21 battle pictures, many dealing with contemporary events such as the Second Afghan War, Candahar (Private collection) and Maiwand; saving the Guns (Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool), the Zulu War - Prince Louis Napoleon in Zululand, and the Boer War - Lindley; Whitsunday 1900 (Oxfordshire Light Infantry Association), and Dawn of Majuba (Canadian Military Institute). He painted many historical recreations both in oil and water-colour including a series on famous British battles for the Illustrated London News. He depicted The Charge of the Light Brigade (Royal Collection, Madrid) and The Charge of the 21st Lancers at Omdurman (Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool), Blenheim, Badajos and several Waterloo pictures. During the Great War, he turned his talents to depicting the current events, three of which were exhibited at the Royal Academy. The 2nd Batt. Manchester Regiment taking six guns at dawn near St. Quentin (The Rings Regiment), Entry of the 5th Lancers into Mons (16th/5th Royal Lancers), and Halloween, 1914: Stand of the London Scottish on Messines Ridge (London Scottish Museum Trust) exhibited in the year of his death. During his life, he was the most popular artist of the genre and he was the subject of several articles in magazines and journals. He himself wrote some memoirs in 1914 entitled Random Recollections. He was deeply interested in the army and joined the Royal Berkshire Yeomanry Cavalry in 1879, staying with them until 1914 when he joined the National Reserve as a Captain.

The term Panzergrenadier was applied equally to both the infantry section of the German Panzer Divisons and was also used for the new Panzergrenadier Divisions.  The German army Panzergrenadier Divisions initially came from existing infantry divisions but were the first Divisons to be motorised.  These included the 3rd, 10th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 18th, 20th, 25th, and 29th divisions.  During the war special elite regiments such as the Grosdeutchland Division were created.  The Waffen SS also produced a number of panzergrenadier regiments.  Many army and Waffen SS regiments were upgraded to Panzer divisions during the later stages of the war.  The Panzergrenadier division usually consisted of six battalions of truck-mounted infantry organized into either two or three regiments, also a battalion of tanks and artillery were included along with sections of anti-tank, anti-aircraft and combat engineers.  Panzer grenadier divisions were often equipped with assault guns - <i>Stugs</i>.  Panzergrenadier divisions had one tank battalion less than a Panzer division but strengthened with two more infantry battalions.  Of 226 panzergrenadier battalions in the whole of the German Army, Waffen SS  (and some in the Luftwaffe ) in September 1943, only 26 were equipped with armoured half tracks, the remaining Panzergrenadier divisions were equipped with trucks.

The Battle of Barnet was fought in a heavy mist, on Easter Sunday 14th April 1471. Due to a misalignment of the opposing armies, all became confusion. The centre of the battle (as depicted here) was fought at close quarters, a mass of struggling knights and men at arms with comrade fighting comrade, their vision of the battle obscured by mist. The Yorkists under the leadership of King Edward IV triumphed, leaving the Lancastrians with hopes dashed. Their champion and leader, the great Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick The King Maker lay dead, cut down while struggling to regain his charger. In the painting Edward IV charges toward the banner of Henry Holland, Duke of Exeter, while in the foreground soldiers of the Houses of York and Lancaster hack and slash at each other in terrified butchery.

August 1995: Eerste Mortier Compagnie Korps Mariniers, Operatie PEGASUS.  Mount Igman, near Sarajevo.  The British and Dutch artillery, established on the commanding feature of Mount Igman, were firing down at the Serbs who were besieging Sarajevo. This was known as Operation PEGASUS.  The artist was based with the Royal Artillery on Mount Igman, and through the initiative of Lt Colonel Patrick Cammaert RNLMC, this painting was commissioned by the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps.  The No.1 commanding the nearest mortar (holding a white notepad) is Korporal Gaspers.  Rocky outcrops of limestone are scattered about the ground.  The Commander-in-Chief Royal Netherlands Navy, Vice-Admiral L. Kroon, presented the painting to the Commandant of the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps, in the presence of HRH Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, at the opening of the new Museum of the Korps Mariniers in Rotterdam, 8th December 1995.
