Claire Eva Burton

Claire Eva Button ranks, as one of Britains leading contemporary equestrian painters. Her paintings are realistic depictions of all that is powerful, dynamic and colourful within the racing world. Born in 1955, Claire Eva Burton had a passion for horses from her earliest childhood. She spent every available waking moment with the ponies at her local stables or sketching horses and landscapes with her inspirational and artistic mother. Whilst attending the Medway College of Art, she maintained her interest in horses, and in racing by riding out regularly in Epsom for leading trainers. Once she had finished college, she spent even more time at the stables, supplementing her income by selling equestrian paintings both to owners and trainers who were known to her and to the general public through tradestands at various racecourses. Following a painful fall, Claire Eva Burton concentrated increasingly on her painting and, in 1981, her work came to the attention of the directors of the Cheltenham Racecourse. At the age of 26, she found herself entrusted with a commission to paint a series of twelve pictures for Her Majesty The Queen Mothers private box. A one-man exhibition in Londons Bond Street soon followed, further establishing her growing reputation. Now, on the strength of her great popular success, Claire Eva Burton has been able to expand her artistic horizons to embrace new subjects and to explore new styles but she remains very much an artist at the peak of her profession.

 Taking over command of the British Northern Army in 1777, Lt Gen Burgoyne began a march to Albany to join forces with Lt Gen Sir William Howe.  After taking Fort Ticonderoga on route he learned that Howe was leaving for Pennsylvania.  Becoming desperately short on supplies he decided to press on the Albany regardless but found the road blocked by a Continental army under Maj Gen Horatio Gates.  Burgoyne decided not to engage the enemys position frontally but to turn their left at Freemans Farm.  After a day of fierce fighting the British held the field but at a heavy price in casualties.  On the 7th October the Colonial army, after receiving continual reinforcements attacked Howes position (the battle became known as Bemis Heights) and he was forced to retire to Saratoga.

Richard the Lionhearts tactical skills and military training played a substantial role in the capture of Acre in 1191 by the Crusaders. But Richard the Lionheart was ruthless and after the capture of the city he marched 2,700 Muslim soldiers onto the road of Nazareth and in front of the Muslim army positions, had them executed one by one.  But Richard the Lionheart was up against a great leader in Saladin and the crusades did not always go his way.  After he negotiated the Treaty of Jaffa with Saladin and secured the granting of special rights of travel around Palestine and in Jerusalem for Christian pilgrims, Richard the Lionheart started his journey back to England in 1192.  He was shipwrecked, and captured by the German Emperor Henry VI, only being released after a 150,000 mark ransom was paid.  This money was raised by taxes in England.
