Description: 1952P22
New Lamps for Old (in frame), 1901
Artist: Joseph Edward Southall

* The subject is taken from story of Aladdin in the One Thousand and One Nights (The Arabian Nights). George Breeze records (in 'Joseph Southall 1861-1944, Artist-Craftsman', Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery, 1983): 'The figures from left to right are: the artist, Arthur Gaskin, (The Magician), Charles March Gere, Mrs F. Wood, (Aladdin's wife), William Littleboy, Alderman White, Joseph Sturge, Anna Elizabeth Baker, John E. Baker (Scheherazade), and Alderman Baker. Apart from the first three who were artists, the other named persons were prominent Quakers in Birmingham. All were close friends or relatives of Southall.'
