William Hogarth Paintings

William Hogarth (1697 – 1764) was an English painter and engraver. He is most well known for his satirical works which often criticized the morals of society. His style of cartoonish illustrations and caricatures were so individualized and widely known that they were labeled as “Hogarthian”. Hogarth was also a skilled painter of realism. He did not aways favor the more glamorous Rococo style of his era and was more inclined to add a shade of realistic grittiness to his paintings.
