Spring in the Cemetery, Uttoxeter Road, Derby 1956 by Marion Adnams,

Nottiingham City Museums


View of the old cemetery, Uttoxeter Road, Derby, with rows of headstones, some straight, others crooked. It is seen from the side, the rows of graves running vertically from the top of the picture to the bottom foreground. In the background of the picture is the cemetery wall, with a row of houses and a tower behind it. On the left, in the foreground, are two large trees with spring foliage, and on the right of the scene is a willow tree beginning to sprout leaves; behind is a large tree.

Napoleon III disliked the portrait of him drawn by Gill. In December 1867, La Lune was censored. “La Lune will have to undergo an eclipse,” an authority commented to Editor Francis Polo when the ban was instituted, unwittingly dubbing Polo’s subsequent publication: L’ƒclipse, which made its first appearance on 9 August 1868. Gill would contribute caricatures to this successor of La Lune as well.
