Michael Kitchen Hurle

Michael Kitchen Hurle was born in London but durign the 1950's Michael moved to rural Somerset. Since then Michael has cultivated a deep appreciation and love of the rural world and has been painting wildlife since the age of ten. He later moved to Warwickshire where he now lives with his wife. Now this accomplished and self-taught artist's work is much sought after by the general public and collectors alike. Michael Kitchen Hurle has exhibited extensively, primarily in the Home Counties, the Cotswolds and in Central London galleries. Paintings have already been sold in Europe, the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Moscow and Japan. Through the prestigious London gallery of H C Dickens more paintings have been sold in the USA. In keeping with the expertise and quality of Michael's work, limited and unlimited editions of prints have been produced by leading companies such as ROSENSTIEL'S, SOLOMON & WHITEHEAD, and DAYFOLD PUBLICATIONS (advertised in the BBC Wildlife Magazine). Others were commissioned by the BORN FREE FOUNDATION (set up to protect and rehabilitate wild animals). These have been countersigned by Virginia McKenna, her late husband Bill Travers, Will Travers and Joanna Lumley. Michael's painting of the two lions Raffi and Anthea, rescued by the Born Free Foundation, was purchased by Anthea Turner. BRADFORD EXCHANGE commissioned Michael to produce plate designs for the series This Land is our Land depicting English Country farming scenes of bygone days. He has also produced a group of paintings for BORDER FINE ARTS for their James Herriot collection. These are used for prints, plates and collector mugs. Michael still finds time to produce designs for cards and calendars for companies such as JARROLDS and the RSPB. NOEL TATT Ltd have in recent years produced a great number of Michaels designs as greeting cards, and some as limited edition prints. These are prints are sought after. and only a few remain available. including Autumn Floods, What was that, Cheviot Shepherd, Pork Loaf, Cry From the Heart and Court of the King.

The Romans have abducted the daughters of their neighbors, the Sabines.  To avenge this abduction, the Sabines attacked Rome, although not immediately, since Hersilia, the daughter of Tatius, the leader of the Sabines, had been married to Romulus, the Roman leader, and then had two children by him in the interim.  Here we see Hersilia between her father and husband as she adjures the warriors on both sides not to take wives away from their husbands or mothers away from their children.  The other Sabine Women join in her exhortations.

 So Tell The Spartans, Stranger passing by that here, Obedient to their laws, we lie.   In 480 BC the Spartans tried to defend the pass at Thermopylae against the Persians led by Xerxes.  The Persian fleet had sailed along the coastline from northern Greece into the Gulf of Malia on the eastern Aegean Sea towards the mountains at Thermopylae. The Greek General and King Leonidas led the Greeks  and tried to defend the pass of Thermopylae.  All the defending Spartans were killed during the Battle of Thermopylae. Their defence and courage provided inspiration to the Greeks, and the following year the Greeks won battles against their old enemy the Persians.

 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.
