Description
This beautifully illustrated book examines the whole of Hogarth’s career, from his beginnings as a young and ambitious engraver in the 1720s to his rise to fame as a painter and printmaker in the 1730s and 1740s, and the crystallization of his aesthetic theories in the 1753 treatise The Analysis of Beauty. Where previous publications have concentrated on just a part of his career, this book examines every aspect; his remarkable canvases, ranging from elegant conversation pieces to salacious brothel scenes, his vibrant drawings and sketches, and the engraved works for which he is perhaps most famous are all included.
