William Hogarth

William Hogarth was perhaps best known for his satires, drawing on London life and the stratification of class in the eighteenth-century. These fine original engravings are an insight into both the history of London and also the circulation of prints in the eighteenth-century. As Hogarth specifically executed some of his finest paintings with the creation and distribution of engravings in mind, it reveals the importance of these pieces as a seminal representation of history, and the power and popularity of social critique and satire.
