Thomas Rowlandson and Augustus Charles Pugin – The Hall Carlton House – 1808

Rowlandson & Pugin del. et sculpt. J. Bluck aquat. Thomas Rowlandson (1756-1827), prolific British artist, caricaturist and printmaker and accomplished French-born architectural draughtsman and printmaker Augustus Charles Pugin (1769-1832) combined their talents and jointly created the illustrations for The Microcosm of London (1808-1810) written by William Henry Pyne, published in London by Rudolf Ackermann in his “Ackermann’s Repository of Arts”, 100 Strand. The collection showcases the institutions, scenery, people and activities of cosmopolitan London at the turn of the 18th century. Pugin and Rowlandson worked collaboratively, with the former providing the architecture and the latter peopling the scenes with figures. The images were then etched by a number of talented engravers in Ackermann’s employ. Of the 104 plates in this three-volume publication, fifty-four were engraved by John Bluck (1791-1832), including this plate 15. It is dated 1st April, 1808 and was included in Volume 1.
