Charlie Chaplin was one of the biggest stars of the silent-film era elevating the new film industry to a status it never expected to enjoy. His character of ‘The Tramp’ is famous the world over, the sweet little man with a bowler hat, mustache and cane has become an icon. Born in London, he started his acting career at an early age following in the footsteps of his mother, a vaudeville and music hall performer. The family was extremely poor and Charlie and his brother Sydney spent spells in the workhouse as their mother’s health declined. Chaplin was determined to go on the stage and eventually managed to find professional work in various troupes.
It was when one of these troupes toured the United States that Chaplin caught the eye of a film producer and was signed up and made his first film debut in 1914 in a forgettable one-reeler. In order to differentiate himself from the host of other actors he was competing with, he decided to develop the character of “The Little Tramp”. The rest, as they say, is history. This bronze statue of Charlie Chaplin is a lovely reminded of this fantastic comedian.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).
