A loan exhibition of watercolors and drawings by the celebrated eighteenth- and nineteenth-century English caricaturist Thomas Rowlandson. The eighty-four works in this exhibition were drawn from forty international collections both public and private. Thomas Rowlandson (1756-1827) was a colorful personality and a versatile and prolific artist best known for portraying aristocrats and the English middle class with an eye for comic incident. A satirist of manners rather than of morals, Rowlandson was able to extract humor from any situation, whether a single event or a chain reaction of mishaps as in Horsemen Colliding and Exhibition 'Stare-Case.'
