Hogarth was one of the most famous, innovative and influential artists of the 18th century. This new survey provides an account of his creative personality through a discussion of aspects of 18th century social and cultural history, revealing Hogarth's place within national society. Hogarth had a significant impact on the ideology of the period because of his preoccupation with satire and his interest in charity, independence and individual moral responsibility. With 32 color and 28 black and white illustrations. Very fine.
