Thomas Rowlandson was an English artist and caricaturist.
Rowlandson's designs were usually done in outline with the reed-pen, and delicately washed with color. They were then etched by the artist on the copper, and afterwards aquatinted—usually by a professional engraver, the impressions being finally colored by hand.
As a designer he was characterized by his facility and ease of draughtsmanship. He dealt less frequently with politics than his fierce contemporary, Gillray, but commonly touching, in a rather gentle spirit, the various aspects and incidents of social life.
His most artistic work is to be found among the more careful drawings of his earlier period; but even among the exaggerated caricature of his later time we find hints that this master of the humorous might have attained to the beautiful had he so willed.
