Event Details

Thomas Bewick (1753 – 1828) was an artist-engraver and naturalist born at Cherryburn, Northumberland. He is famed for his miniature woodblock prints depicting rural life. Bewick developed his skill as an apprentice engraver, learning to cut lettering and small pictures on both wood and metal for trades including jewellers and cutlery makers. His in-depth knowledge of printing practises meant he was able to innovatively apply metal engraving processes onto wood, resulting in a level of detail never seen before. An indication of his humour and moral character can be seen through close inspection of the scenes, many offering commentary on important social issues of his time. We invite you to visit the exhibition at Croome and explore Bewick’s playful and
detailed depictions inspired by the natural world.
