Thomas Bewick (1753-1828) is known for the technical innovations he brought to wood engraving at the turn of the 19th century. The Tale-Pieces series is composed of scenes visibly inspired by Bewick’s youth in the country, on a farm by the River Tyne. These miniature masterpieces irreverently present 18th-century figures who are up to mischief.
