Thomas Rowlandson (1756-1827)

Thomas Rowlandson was an English artist and caricaturist. Rowlandson was born in Old Jewry, in the City of London, the son of a tradesman or city merchant. On leaving school Rowlandson became a student at the Royal Academy. His work included a personification of the United Kingdom named John Bull who was developed from about 1790 in conjunction with other British satirical artists such as Gillray and George Cruikshank. He also produced a body of erotic prints and woodcuts, many of which would be considered pornographic today. His work is extremely well-known and widely collected today.
