The Bindman Talks 2010 at Dove Cottage
Professor Ian Rogerson, "Thomas Bewick and his influence on visual communication."Saturday 7 August, 4.30pm
"Professor Ian Rogerson is former Librarian of Manchester Metropolitan University, and is currently Research Fellow at the John Rylands Institute. He has written extensively on wood engraving. He will look at how Thomas Bewick and his pupils influenced nineteenth-century illustration, and how Bewick's 'white-line' largely inspired the twentieth-century wood engraving revival."
The Bindman Talks provide a general introduction to some of the authors and works in the Wordsworth Trust's collection. Other talks in the series are listed here.
"The sixth Bindman series of talks has a special focus on the Lake District as seen through the eyes of its early visitors and artists, and the impact that man had on the area in the nineteenth century. There will also be informal introductory sessions for those new to Romanticism, and a special evening event in Dove Cottage for families."
