The article is devoted to the illustrations of J.A. Atkinson – the most fascinating and the least known aspect of the art of this unfairly forgotten artist. The scenes from “The Miseries of Human Life” by J. Beresford and “The Cutter…” by A.B. Evans demonstrate his satirical talent. Atkinson is steeped in the tradition established by Hogarth. Stylistically his images are reminiscent of those by Rowlandson, but seem milder. This trend is echoed in the art of Cruikshank, in his illustrations to Ch. Dickens and F.E. Smedley, in which daring stylization shows influence of Rowlandson, but restrained tone is inherited from Atkinson.
