David Whetstone reviews "Tale-pieces" at the Laing Art Gallery.

"LET’S not kid ourselves about the olden days – the early 1800s, say. There wasn’t much on the telly, so you had to find your pleasures where you could. If that meant putting a baby in a cart tethered to a dog which had a cat tied in front of it, pointing the whole shebang in the direction of a river, providing some exuberant encouragement with a long stick and letting nature take its course, then so be it!"

From Thomas Bewick's unflinching view of life Jul 7 2009 By David Whetstone, The Journal.
