Title: " Engraver William Hogarth "
Satire in 18th century England is usually associated with three great writers --- Swift, Pope and Fielding. But the list is incomplete without the name of their visual contemporary, William Hogarth. His marvelously detailed engravings and paintings not only slash at his subjects' pretensions and stupidities, but they also give us our most accurate visual history of the period. Professor Paulson explores how Hogarth achieved his biting satire and the remarkable ties between the visual artist and his verbal colleagues.
