Abstract: William Blake (1757-1827) and Thomas Bewick (1753-1828) were both English engravers for prints and book illustrations in the Romantic era. They worked in south and north England and represented two very different styles, yet also shared revolutionary spirits in printmaking and book making. This lecture introduces two types of representation in images, prints, and books in Romantic Britain, and questions what Romanticism really means.
