William Hogarth is one of the great names in English 18th century art. Whilst he would have liked to have been a painter of histories, Hogarth discovered that his strengths lay in producing imagery that had contemporary resonance, moreover art that was often satirical in tone. Over the course of his career, he produced numerous engravings and paintings through which he commented wryly on aspects of London life. In this lecture we survey Hogarth`s career and set it into historical context and examine some of those subjects he satirised through his art.
