Anecdotes of William Hogarth

Author(s): William Hogarth

Special Orders

A new title in the Lives of the Artists series, which offers personal, revealing accounts of prominent artists as viewed by their contemporaries--and themselves.

One of the most visible, popular, and significant artists of his generation, William Hogarth (1697-1764) is best known for his acerbic, strongly moralizing works, which were mass-produced and widely disseminated as prints during his lifetime. This volume is a fascinating look into the notorious English satirical artist's life, presenting Anecdotes of William Hogarth, Written by Himself--a collection of autobiographical vignettes supplemented with short texts and essays written by his contemporaries, first published in 1785.
