More Description


William Hogarth was the first native-born British artist to achieve international fame. His wider reputation rested largely on his engraved work, but it was as a painter that he dominated the formative years of the British school in the 1730s and 1740s, bringing to it a great individual talent that was as prickly as it was diverse.

This fresh and fascinating book accompanies a special display at the Tate Gallery in honor of the tercentenary of Hogarth's birth and celebrates his achievement as a painter rather than a graphic artist. It offers a survey of his painting career from the late 1720s to 1759, when he virtually ceased to paint, and is based on the Tate's own unrivaled collection of works by Hogarth, supplemented by more than a dozen key paintings from public and private collections, some of them new to Hogarth literature.
