From the cover: “Rowlandson was born in 1756, a few years before the accession of George III, and died just a decade before Queen Victoria came to the throne. This volume gathers together everything that is known about Rowlandson and assesses his qualities in the light of current research. It analyses his development as an artist, his methods of work, the quality of his drawing, and the nature of his subject-matter. The illustrations have been chosen from the wealth of material available to give the fullest possible idea of the range of Rowlandson’s style both as draughtsman and watercolourist. Each is accompanied by a descriptive note and critique.”
