Great War Portraits

This Remembrance Sunday will be the first with no living British survivors from the First World War- this BBC portrait gallery, based on this book, is a worthy memorial to that brave generation.

Most poignant.

Speaking of paintings, an oil painting of 1833, The Execution Of Lady Jane Grey, was shown on television this morning. It never ceases to move me.
