Thomas Rowlandson (1756–1827) was an English artist and caricaturist. His gentle sense of humour poked fun at social life.
As a schoolboy, he drew humourous sketches of teachers and pupils in the margins of his books. Rowlandson studied at the Royal Academy in London and in Paris.
He drew in outline with a pen, and delicately washed the picture with colour. He then used etching and aquatinting to make a copper printing plate. His prints were beautifully finished with hand painted colouring.
Here are some of his prints you to choose from. They are genuine antique prints, made in the 1820s.
