From Beer Street to Gin Lane and back again- Information file by Krystian Filip Jarnuszkiewicz: William Hogarth 1697 - 1764

William Hogarth 1697 - 1764

Hogarth is best known for his series paintings of 'modern moral subjects', of which he sold engravings on subscription. The Collection contains the set called 'Marriage A-la-Mode'. Although pugnaciously hostile to Continental art, he succumbed to French influence. In 1753 he published his 'Analysis of Beauty', in which he stresses the importance of the serpentine line.
