    description: In the supper-box on the left we see, reading left to right, <b>James Boswell</b>, <b>Mrs Thrale</b> (who appears twice), <b>Dr. Johnson</b>, and <b>Oliver Goldsmith</b>. <p>The ‘macaroni’ <b>Captain Edward Topham</b> (scandalmonger to The World) is quizzing <b>Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire</b> and her sister <b>Lady Duncannon</b> (Sheridan’s Lady Bessborough), watched by a naval figure with an eye patch and a wooden leg (not included in the Mellon version), always called <b>Admiral Paisley</b>, but Paisley did not lose his leg and eye until 1st June 1794, so it cannot be him. To the left of him, a young girl (a young boy in the Mellon version) holding the hand of a man who could be the comic actor, <b>William Parsons</b>, or Rowlandson’s friend <b>Jack Bannister</b>. </p> <p>Peering at the two ladies from behind a tree is a figure traditionally, though improbably, identified as <b>Sir Henry Bate-Dudley</b>, the ‘Fighting Parson’, editor of the Morning Herald; he is more likely to be <b>Thomas Tyers</b> (son of Jonathan Tyers the great entrepreneur and proprietor of Vauxhall Gardens from 1729 until 1767) who stands next to the Scotsman <b>James Perry</b>, editor of the London Gazette. The <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">couple</u> on their right could well be the artist himself and his current girlfriend. and to the right of them stands the actress <b>Mary ‘Perdita’ Robinson</b>, with <b>her husband</b> on her right and the Prince of Wales (later <b>George IV</b>) on her left. </p> <p>Looking up at the singer, the <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">couple</u> on the extreme left, have been identified as the actress <b>Miss Hartley</b>, in company with one of her many admirers, possibly <b>Mr. Colman</b>, but, suggested by their position apart from the crowd, they could also be members of the <b>Tyers family</b> (most likely Jonathan jr. and his wife Margaret, or their son-in-law Bryant Barrett and his wife Elizabeth. The large lady seated at the table on the right is <b>Mrs Barry</b>, the old Madam of Sutton Street, Soho, with two of her customers and one of her girls. </p> <p>In the orchestra, we can see <b>Jacob Nelson</b>, the tympanist, who had played at Vauxhall since 1735, and died there after fifty years' performing, <b>Mr Fisher</b> on oboe, probably <b>Hezekiah Cantelo</b> and <b>Mr. Sargent</b> on trumpet, and <b>Barthélemon</b>, the leader, who retired in 1783. <b>James Hook</b>, the composer, organist, musical director and prolific song-writer, may be seen between Barthelemon and the singer, the 38-year-old <b>Frederika Weichsell</b>, who was Rowlandson’s next-door neighbour in Church Street, and the mother of Mrs. Elizabeth Billington. Elizabeth had just (aged 18) married James Billington, a double-bass player, in 1783, much against her parents’ wishes. </p> <p>A number of those present in this scene had already died by the time Rowlandson produced the painting, and the affaire between the Prince and Perdita Robinson was already over. </p> Although there is no direct evidence for this, it seems likely, because of the dating, and because of the central position of the singer, that the painting was created by Rowlandson as a retirement gift for Frederika Weichsel, whether from him personally, or specially commissioned by the proprietors of the gardens.

    description: The centaur mosaic was found in the 18th century on the site of the sprawling, luxurious villa complex near Tivoli that once belonged to the Roman emperor Hadrian. The mosaic was found in situ along with other smaller ones that bore depictions of landscapes, animals and masks. The relatively small central panel (emblema) formed part of the floor decoration for the dining room (triclinium) in the main palace. The various individual scenes of these mosaic pictures bear depictions of wild, inhospitable landscapes that deliberately contrast with idyllic ones featuring animals living in harmony with each other. The dangers of the wild are portrayed in this mosaic in the dramatic struggle between great cats and a pair of centaurs, mythological creatures with the head, arms, and torso of a man and the body and legs of a horse. On a rocky outcrop that hangs over a terrific chasm that runs parallel to the bottom of the picture, a pair of centaurs have been pounced on by great cats. While the male centaur has been able to defend itself successfully from the lion, the tiger has managed to bring the female centaur to the ground and is clawing her side. The male centaur rushes to his companion’s side, rearing his legs in the air while holding a rock aloft above his head. Undaunted, the tiger seems intent on not surrendering its prey. Even though one lion already lies fatally wounded, bleeding and with its claws retracted, the outcome of the struggle is anything but clear because in the background (whose spatial depth is achieved through the staggered arrangement of rock forms and impressive gradations of colour) we see yet another foe for the centaur: a leopard ready to pounce. While depictions in older Greek art tended to emphasise the bestial side of centaurs, later depictions increasingly focussed on their human qualities. Lucian, a writer from the 2nd century, records that the Greek painter Zeuxis (active around 400 BCE) became famous for his painting of a family of centaurs, including the young, set in a rural idyll. Similarly, Ovid, who lived around the turn of the millennium, wrote in moving verse of the death of a centaur <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">couple</u>. The extensive restoration work that was undertaken in the 18th and 19th century makes it difficult to date the mosaic with certainty. As a result, its dating ranges from Hellenistic to Hadrianic. There is broad agreement among scholars that the mosaic amounts to one of most virtuoso works of Roman mosaic art, which was inspired by a Greek work of art (either a panel painting or mosaic) from the Hellenistic period.
