Thomas Cook (1744 or 1745?-1818), Printmaker

Artist associated with 35 portraits
Thomas Cook was a pupil of Simon François Ravenet, who afterwards undertook a range of projects for the publisher. He worked as a printmaker in a number of contexts, producing portraits for the Gentleman's Magazine and frontispieces for book publishers, as well as a number of single plates in different genres for Boydell. Cook was best known for his reproductions of the works of Hogarth, published as Hogarth Restored in 1806. He also engraved the reduced reproductions of Hogarth for Nichols and Stevens's Genuine Works of William Hogarth (1808-17).
