William Hogarth, 1697-1764 by Linda Smith

by Jean Cook - 16:28 on 03 September 2020

On line lecture: 6pm Tuesday 08 September 2020

Hogarth is nowadays mostly remembered as a talented satirist, but there is much more to him than that. He was extremely ambitious in other artistic fields, including portraiture, history painting, and art theory. He was also a tireless self-promoter and entrepreneur, with a real and practical concern for the status of his profession. This talk tracks his career from humble copperplate engraver to successful painter, showing a wide variety of images which demonstrate his exceptional originality and inventiveness. Above all, however, it is his unparalleled eye for absurdity and human weakness which not only tells us so much about his times but gives us food for thought about our own.
