Contemporary painter, Mark Fairnington, took on the ‘mantle’ of Thomas Bewick, by ‘following in his footsteps’, recreating walks he made in the landscape surrounding Cherryburn over 200 years ago. Based on sketches of small but vivid details, such as a hanging swing he encountered along the way, Fairnington produced a series of small paintings, taking a contemporary viewpoint. These exquisite works were hung in Bewick’s birthplace, a tiny cottage adjacent to the Cherryburn museum.
