Jenny Uglow uncovers the man, but also the world he sprang from, immersing us in eighteenth-century London and bringing to vibrant life the scenes that became the subjects of his prints and paintings: political follies like the South Sea Bubble, gatherings in bourgeois households and fashionable salons, lurid criminal acts and trials, and wretched institutions like Bedlam or debtors' prison.
