Regarding Thomas Rowlandson 1757-1827
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Along with his contemporary Gillray, Thomas Rowlandson (1757-1827) was the greatest graphic satirist of Georgian England, whose scurrilous cartoons mercilessly lampooned the follies of his age and its rulers. Yet he kept no diary and wrote few letters, so little is known about him. Drawing on newspapers, church records and other contemporary accounts, this fully illustrated study sheds new light on Rowlandson's family background, artistic training and professional associations, his travels in Britain and abroad, and his friendships.
