The Blacksmith's Shop
Plate 33 from Etch'd Thoughts by the Etching Club (London, 1844)
Thomas Creswick, British, 1811 - 1869. Published by Etching Club, London.
When Creswick republished this image in Etch'd Thoughts by the Etching Club (London, 1844), he paired it with lines from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's 1839 poem "The Village Blacksmith," because the poem so well matched the narrative sensibilities of the scene.
