William Hogarth (1697–1764) was one of the great eighteenth-century painters, a marvelous colorist, and an innovator at all levels of artistic expression. In this updated volume, art historian and Hogarth scholar David Bindman surveys the works of this artist whose wry humor and sharp wit was reflected in his prolific paintings and prints, including The Rake’s Progress and Marriage A-la-Mode. Hogarth was also a master of pictorial satire, highlighting the moral and political issues of the day with delightful detail and comedy―themes that resonate deeply with our times. This new edition has been specially updated to include a discussion of Hogarth’s representation of Black people in eighteenth-century Britain, a subject that has long been overlooked in his many works.
