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.

 Samurai Warriors of the Sekighahara campaign 1600. The most important and decisive battle in the history of Japan, Sekigahara was the culmination of the Power struggle triggered by the death of the great warlord Toyotomi Hideyoshi. The two rivals for power were Ishida Mitsunari and Tokugawa Ieyasu. The contest was ultimately settled by force of arms in a small mountain valley in central Japan. By the end of the day 40,000 heads had been taken and Ieyasu was master of Japan. Within three years the Emperor would grant him the title he sought - Shogun.
