Thomas Rowlandson

1183 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #4311
Rococo   •   Thomas Rowlandson @ Wikipedia

The English painter Thomas Rowlandson became famous for his socio-critical caricatures. His erotic, sometimes even pornographic pictures were strongly influenced by the paintings of the French Rococo.

The son of a distinguished merchant was born in London, where he later studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, followed by some studies in Paris. He began with portraits and landscape paintings, but the etcher James Gillray, as well as Henry William Burnbury inspired him to caricature painting, which finally earned him attention and success, as in 1784 the images of Vauxhall Gardens. The publisher Rudolph Ackermann published in his Poetical Magazine a variety of colored Aquatinblätter Rowlandsons, which is based on a special process of artistic printmaking, which is worked with Flächenätzung. Books by Henry Fielding, Tobias Smolett, Laurence Sterne, or Oliver Goldsmith were illustrated with drawings by Thomas Rowlandson. English journals spread his cartoons.

As vicious as his pictures seemed to be his life change. He had a great passion for betting and gambling, which kept him short of money. Nevertheless, he reached a lifetime of 71 years. He died in his birthplace London. Works like The Toss off , poem and illustrations or The Adulturers discovered are still loved today by lovers as well as indignation. © Meisterdrucke
