The “Death of Cock Robin”, also known as “The Death and Burial of Cock Robin” is a somewhat macabre English nursery rhyme describing the murder and the funeral of a robin. When Cock Robin is shot dead by a sparrow, the birds organise his funeral: depending on the version, the Owl will dig his grave, the Rook will read the service, the Kite will carry him to the grave, and the Dove will be the chief mourner: publicdomainreview.org/collections/the-death-and-burial-of-cock-robin/ ...

The artist's calling...Richard Dadd — who died today in 1886 — was a young British painter of huge promise who fell into mental illness while touring the Mediterranean in the early 1840s. He spent over forty years in lunatic asylums but never gave up his calling, producing mesmerisingly detailed watercolours and oil paintings of which The Fairy Feller’s Master-Stroke (detail here) is now the most well known. The picture’s history encapsulates the peculiar rise and, if not fall, then at least suspension, of its maker’s reputation, and indeed begs the question of what happens to any long-dead forgotten genius after they’ve been rediscovered.
