  • About
  • Thomas Bewick lived and worked most of his life in Northumberland. He made a unique contribution to English art: his work as a wood-engraver has not been surpassed. This was recognized in the nineteenth century by Carlyle, Wordsworth, Charlotte Bronte-and Ruskin, who said: `I know no drawing so subtle as Bewick's since the fifteenth century, except Holbein's and Turner's.'
