Undine and the Mermaids – Forging the Anchor

“In a cove,
Shell-strewn, and consecrate of old to some Undine’s love,
To find the long-haired mermaidens.”

Harold Stephen “Hal” Ludlow was born in Newport, Monmouthshire, in 1861, and studied at Heatherley’s and Highgate College. He worked as a portrait painter but is probably best known as an illustrator. He drew for Dalziel Brothers publications, including Ally Sloper’s Half Holiday (1884-c.1896) and Judy, where he was political cartoonist from 1889. He illustrated for other magazines including Chums, The Illustrated London News and the Strand Magazine.

The present work is an illustration for Sir Samuel Ferguson’s (1810-1886) poem The Forging of the Anchor, published by Cassell & Company in 1883.
