J P Beadle

Beadle was an academic painter who, unlike many of his contemporaries did not make a living as an illustrator. The son of Major-General James Pattle Beadle, the artist spent his early years in India becoming immersed in things military. Upon his father's move back to England, James went to study at the Slade School for three years under Alphonse Legros before moving to Paris to study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts with Cabanal. His final schooling was in London with G.F. Watts. From his home in Victoria Road, Kensington, he submitted his first painting entitled The Painter at the age of 20 in 1884, at the distinguished Royal Academy of Arts in London, and in the following year he showed a portrait of his father in full uniform. Four years later he was awarded a bronze medal at the Paris Universal Exhibition for a painting of Les Gardes du Corps de la Reine. However, his first military painting exhibited at the Royal Academy did not appear until six years later. Drawn from life it depicted the Centenary Inspection of the Duke of York's Own Loyal Suffolk Hussars at Bury St. Edmund's in 1893. In the following year he had his own exhibition at the Fine Art Society in London. The show was entitled 'Military England of Today' and included pictures entitled Waiting for the Watering Order and Dragoons returning to camp. As one reviewer wrote, 'He does not go out of his way to flatter Tommy Atkins but he shows him to the public under many forms and in many becoming uniforms. He has studied him at home and abroad, at peace and at war, on horseback and on foot, an our verdict must be that the English soldier, of whatever branch of the service, is trim and business-like, and in many cases, a picturesque object'. His interest in the soldier at war led him to paint his first battle scene in 1897 representing Corporal Styles of the Royal Dragoons capturing the Standard of the French 105th Infantry Regiment at Waterloo. He followed this up with several military scenes such as The Comrade showing a military funeral in a village, and Paris - a torchlight procession of Cuirassiers, but the war in South Africa which broke out in 1899 provided him with material for numerous canvases. In 1901 he exhibited two paintings of the war: one showing the Grenadier Guards saving wounded soldiers from the burning veldt at Biddulphsberg (shown at the New Gallery), and a picture of the 62nd Field Battery arriving at the battlefield of Modder River, exhibited at the Royal Academy. He followed this up in 1902 with The Victors of Paardeberg showing British troops cheering beside a wall of mealie bags as surrendering Boers approach them. While he never forgot the war and returned to it for inspiration later on, he became increasingly more interested in depicting past military victories. In 1904 he exhibited a scene of the Battle of Dettingen and during the first decade of the twentieth century painted a number of canvases of the wars against Napoleon. These included The passage of the Bidassoa exhibited in 1908, 'the rear guard' of 1910 showing the retreat to Corunna, and 1806: an affair of outposts. A painting of the Franco-Prussian War was hung in 1906. The Boer War resurfaced with his scene representing artillery leaving for the front, exhibited at the Academy in 1907, his painting of 1911 entitled 'The empty saddle', and in 1915, his painting of the 2nd Battalion of the Rifle Brigade charging uphill at Bergendal. His continuing interest in the Peninsula War led him to take a holiday in Spain and Portugal in 1912 where he visited numerous battlefields to sketch the terrain. In the same year he exhibited a picture of the fighting at San Sebastian in August 1813, and in the following year, submitted his picture of Vittoria, June 21st, 1813. As late as 1924 he was still painting scenes from this war, but in the meantime the events in Europe were occupying the minds of everyone. Beadle, like his contemporaries Wollen and Woodville, began to paint scenes from the Great War, often from imagination and sometimes with the help from veterans. Among his many paintings are Neuve Chapelle, 10 March 1915, Dawn: Waiting to go over, Breaking the Hindenburg Line, and the Battle of Gheluveldt, 1914, painted in 1920. In the twenties, he turned more to landscapes possibly as a result of the horrors inflicted in the Great War. While his last painting at the Royal Academy was shown in 1929, he was to live for another 17 years finally dying in Kensington on 13 August 1946. (c) Peter Harrington.

  Objective Steel, 26th February 1991.  Just before the start of the ground offensive, the artist was invited by 3rd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers to join them in the desert, and jumped at the opportunity.  After various adventures with other units in trying to reach their location in the flat, featureless terrain, I was attached to the crew of a Warrior Armoured Fighting Vehicle of C Company, Callsign Zero Charlie, commanded by Captain Bob Keating.  The Battlegroup made a wide sweep around the enemy and attacked them unexpectedly from the west.  The area codenamed Objective STEEL consisted of dugouts, trenches and artillery pieces.  In this painting, soldiers are dismounting from Warriors with fixed bayonets to capture Iraqi artillery, which was uselessly pointing to the South.  The green pennant flying from an antenna denotes C Company.  The black desert rat painted on the rear stowage bin was the badge of 4th Armoured Brigade.  The battlegroup halted around the final Iraqi gun positions on STEEL at 1445 hours, and about 800 prisoners in all were taken.  I was able to take some photographs of the enemy's 155 mm guns here.  The ground was littered with MLRS bomblets.  At 1502 hours, nine British soldiers were killed and 12 seriously injured as a result of a tragic mistake by US Air Force pilots, who engaged and destroyed two of the Warriors of C Company.  David Rowlands was asked to depict these two vehicles, call signs Two Two and Two Three, in this painting.

 The decisive battle of the War of the Roses was fought near Market Bosworth. Richard of Gloucester, the last Plantagenate King of England was to try consequences with Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond. The bloody conflict began in the traditional manner with the opposing armies drawn up in line. facing one another, except for the forces of Thomas Neville, Lord Stanley, as yeyt uncommitted to either side. King Richard, the Third of that name, is seated astride his grey charger in his fine blued harness. He is accompanied by his personal standard and the royal standard, alongside that of Lord Zouch to his right. His herald, trumpet are at his side. To his left Richards Chamberlain and Admiral, Viscount Lord Lovel, sits ready, astride his mount. To the rear we see the rest of the household and choice force of cavalry, kept out of shot to avoid unnecessary casualties amongst the expensive war horses.  After the opening deadly arrow storm, boys hurriedly collect fallen arrows for Richards men to shoot back. In the front line crossbowmen return fire from behind the safety of their decorated pavaises (painted with the suns and white roses of York and the white boar, Richards badge). Close by a gentleman at arms, mortally wounded by an iron ball fired from a hand gonne is dragged from the field by his page. Sir Walter Devereux (Lord Ferrers) accompanied by his standard is encouraging his household (soldiers wearing his livery colours ) to attack.  However, there is a marked reluctance on both sides to join the vicious close quarter combat of handstrokes and only in the centre is there any heavy fighting. Richard is informed by his herald that Henry and his household have been recognised and are now within charge distance. Faced with his armies reluctance to come to grips with the enemy, he decides to force battle himself by leading his own household, the Choice Force, in a desperate charge against Henry seeking to engage him in single combat.  Characteristically leading from the front Richard slays many a knight, including William Brandon (Henrys standard bearer) in his vain attempt to kill his rival. At this crucial moment Lord Stanley decides to join Henrys cause, attacks the choice force and drives it from the field. In the brutal hand to hand fighting the king is unhorsed and though surrounded, fights to the end.  -KingRichard alone was killed fighting manfully in the thickest press of his enemies - his courage was high and fierce and failed him not even at the death which when his men forsook him, he preferred to take by the sword, rather than by foul flight to prolong his life- (Polydore Virgil)
