Caption: Bartholomew Fair. 19th-century artwork of a night scene at Bartholomew Fair, Smithfield, London, UK. This annual fair was held on and around St Bartholomew's Day (24 August) from 1133 until suppressed in 1855. This artwork is from 'The Microcosm of London', a series of 104 hand-coloured aquatints depicting London buildings and scenes. They were published by Rudolph Ackermann between 1808 and 1810, and then collected in three folio volumes. The artworks combined architectural details by Charles Augustus Pugin, and human figures drawn by Thomas Rowlandson. This aquatint, published 1 February 1808, was engraved by John Bluck.
