English: One of the earliest football paintings in the world, Thomas M.M. Hemy's "Sunderland v. Aston Villa 1895", also titled "A Corner Kick", depicts a match between the two most successful English teams of the decade. The venue is the Newcastle Road ground in Sunderland, and the game finished 4-4. This painting is currently exhibited (behind glass) at Sunderland's Stadium of Light.

Hemy specialized in marine paintings, but also painted urban scenes such as this one. He was born on a ship from England to Australia in 1852, spent parts of his life in Newcastle upon Tyne and London, and died on the Isle of Wight in 1931.
