Jacqueline Riding has written a major new biography of Chiswick’s most famous son, the great painter, engraver and satirist William Hogarth. Where better to discuss it than the new Weston Studio at Hogarth’s House? She is interviewed by Val Bott, chairman of the William Hogarth Trust.
“This is a special book that drops you heart first into Hogarth’s world – like the great man’s canvasses, it is full of richness, originality and considered humour, unafraid to shock with thrilling new insight” – Dr Gus Casely-Hayford, Director of V&A Stratford.
[Hogarth] “was far more than a mere depicter of his age and an artist of skill and talent. He was also a complex and active human being who was living within the society he drew. As such, he is worthy of a thorough and considered biography that captures the man of the time as well as the artist. That is exactly what Jacqueline Riding has brilliantly provided.”
Drinks and books will be on sale.
