Abstract:

This novel presents a rollicking picture of 18th century London life in that colourful period. Hogarth's epoch-defining paintings and engravings are renowned. He was London's painter par excellence, and supplies the most enduring vision of the eighteenth century's ebullience, enjoyments and social iniquities. From a childhood spent in a debtor's prison to his death in the arms of his wife, this book follows the life of painter Hogarth as he makes a name for himself and as he fights for artists with his Copyright Act. Through his lifelong marriage to Jane Thornhill, his inability to have children, his time as one of England's best portrait painters, his old age and unfortunate dip into politics, and ultimately his death, this is the artist's life through the artist's eyes.
