This special exhibition explores William Hogarth’s relationship with animals through his work as an artist and in his personal life. In his work, William Hogarth depicted all aspects of animal life in Georgian Britain, from the reality of widespread animal cruelty to the beloved family pet.
The venue, Hogarth’s House, was the country home of the great painter, engraver and satirist from 1749 until his death. He bought it as a weekend and summer home, away from the noise of his other home in what is now Leicester Square.
Usually, the house is open Tuesday to Sunday from 12.00 noon to 5.00pm, with special openings on Bank Holiday Mondays. The House is closed on Good Friday, Easter Sunday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
