Bewick, Thomas (1753-1828) | Lake Forest College Archives and Special Collections

Name: Bewick, Thomas (1753-1828)


Historical Note:

Thomas Bewick was a British wood engraver and naturalist in 1770s to 1820s.  Earlier he produced outstanding prints of British birds and four-legged animals, and after 1812 turned to a monumental edition of Aesop's Fables.

Bewick's mastery of his craft was supreme. Though he has inspired many since the early 20th century to follow in his footsteps in reviving this archaic printing method, he is considered unequalled at his art.
