    Hogarth’s World

    William Hogarth who lived from :1697 – 1764, was an artist and engraver. He specialized in satire, which would be referred to these days as, heavy handed moralizing on the wages of sin. His plates were so popular that they were actually pirated. Leading Parliament to pass the Hogarth Act of 1735, to protect copyright. The plates provide us with an invaluable look at life in Georgian London. His eight plate series ,The Harlot's Progress, traces the life of a country lass from her arrival in London to an imprisoned whore. In The Rake's Progress, the debauched protagonist is seen at one stage being entertained in a Russell Street tavern by a bevy of prostitutes, one of whom strokes his chest while the other relieves him of his pocket watch.
