Great North Museum: Hancock, Newcastle
Preserved in our archives is a remarkable collection of drawings saved by Thomas Bewick’s children from the floor of his wood engraving workshop around the turn of the 18th century. On tiny scraps of paper, these drawings represent Bewick’s initial moments of inspiration and studying them in this talk will give us an insight into the artistic vision of England’s greatest wood engraver.
This is joint event with the Bewick Society. Keir Davidson is a landscape designer, author and lecturer for the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Society.
