William Hogarth 1697 to 1764 Linda Smith Wednesday 01 November 2017

This lecture tracks the career of Hogarth, from humble copper plate engraver to successful painter, who is mostly remembered as a satirist.  He was extremely ambitious in other artistic fields including portraiture, history painting and art theory.  He had a great eye for absurdity and human weakness.

Linda Smith ​is an art historian with 2 first class degrees in Art History.  She is an experienced guide at Tate Britain, Tate Modern and Dulwich Picture Gallery.
