Richard Ansdell

Richard Ansdell was born in Liverpool, the son of Thomas Griffiths Ansdell, a freeman who worked at the Liverpool Dock, and Anne Jackson. His father died young and Richard went to the Bluecoat School for orphans. Richard had a natural talent for art from an early age, and after school went to Chatham Kent and became a portrait painter. In 1835 Richard Ansdell first exhibited at the Liverpool Academy. His animal and rural subjects proved to be popular and he soon attracted wealthy patrons and in 1840 Richard had his first exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. In June 1841, he married Maria Romer - and had 11 children. In 1847 the family left Liverpool to live in Kensingotn in London. In 1848 Richard Ansdell painted the magnificent Fight for the Standard (owned by the Royal Hoispital Chelsea). In 1855, Andsell was awarded a gold medal at the Paris Exhibitionwith the The Wolf Slayer and Taming the Drove. He also won the Heywood medal three times for his work at the Manchester Royal Institution. Richard Ansdell in 1861 was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy (ARA) and a Royal Academician (RA) in 1870. During part of his career he kept a summer house at Lytham St Annes, in the borough of Fylde, where a district, Ansdell, is named after him. He is the only English artist to have been honoured in this way. In April 1885 Richard Ansdell died at Collingwood Tower near Frimley, Surrey. He was buried at Brookwood Cemetery.

The Battle at Rorke's Drift, also known as the Defence of Rorke's Drift, was an action in the Anglo-Zulu War. The defence of the mission station of Rorke's Drift, under the command of Lieutenant John Chard of the Royal Engineers, immediately followed the British Army's defeat at the Battle of Isandlwana on 22nd January 1879, and continued into the following day, 23rd January.  150 British and colonial troops successfully defended the garrison against an intense assault by approximately 2000 Zulu warriors. The intense and noisy Zulu attacks on Rorke's Drift came very close to defeating the tiny garrison, but were ultimately repelled by blasts of Martini-Henry rifle fire-and some smart bayonet work-with some guts behind the bayonet thrusts! Eleven Victoria Crosses were awarded to the defenders, along with a number of other decorations and honours. Of particular note in the painting is the dog 'Pip' - he survived Isandlwhana by retreating along the fugitive's trail to Rorke's Drift. During the Zulu attacks on Rorke's drift, Pip did his part in the defence - by jumping on the mealie bag parapets and barking at Zulus- who were hiding in the long grass and sneaking up to the defences, then biting any Zulu who came within range. Unfortunately Pip was not officially recognised for his part in the action. He was not awarded a VC, on the basis that he was a volunteer canine that accompanied an officer, rather than a War Office issued canine. Conversely, if Pip had been killed, then he would not have been officially listed as a casualty, as he accompanied the army in a strictly private capacity. British army horses were in a different category as they were War Office issue, therefore the loss of a horse in action, or to disease, carried a financial liability for the War Office.
