Rowlandson
Thomas Rowlandson

One of the great names in the “golden age” of caricatures, which ran for fifty years from c.1780.

He entered the Royal Academy School at the age of sixteen, then spent two years in Paris and was exhibiting at the Royal Academy from 1775 onwards.
A prolific artist, he worked for many of the leading print sellers, both from his own designs, and by the developing designs produced by others.
Social caricature was his main area, though some of his political satires showed political insights as well as great artistry.
