1697 - 1764
Hogarth's illustrations to books, and his own seminal graphic narrative sequences are well known and, thanks to Ronald Paulson in particular, critically discussed with intelligence. This small selection is intended as a reminder of Hogarth's narrative skills, as a reference for dates and a repository of lesser known images and telling details.
