Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

Black Eyes and Lemonade (1951) was an exhibition curated by Barbara Jones held at the Whitechapel Gallery. The exhibition was focused on popular and traditional art. The occasion was the Festival of Britain. Peter Blake traces the start of British Pop Art to this exhibition.

The title is from a line of poetry, "black eyes and lemonade" from the poem "Intercepted Letters, or the Two-Penny Post-Bag" by English poet Thomas Moore.
