Words and Pictures: Writers, Artists and a Peculiarly British Tradition (Paperback)Jenny Uglow (author)
Paperback 176 Pages
"Words and Pictures" explores three fascinating examples of relationships between artists and writers: the illustrations of "Paradise Lost" and "Pilgrim's Progress"; Hogarth and Fielding, a writer and artist dealing with common material; and, Wordsworth and Thomas Bewick, a poet and engraver working separately, but imbued with the spirit of their age. A brief coda turns to a fourth kind of relationship, the writers and artists who collaborate from the start, beginning with Dickens and Phiz. Illustrated throughout with a wide variety of examples, this is a book to pore over and enjoy.
