This course will study Hogarth's vision as a portraitist, caricaturist, engraver, moralist, raconteur and flâneur.

About

"Hogarth reveals that good painting can be witty: a discovery made suitably enough only in the age of wit." Michael Levey, 1962 

Hogarth was an extraordinary artist, remembered chiefly as a satirist but with a wickedly humorous eye. He was equally engaged in aesthetics as in politics, a keen observer of people and society at all levels. This course will study his vision as a portraitist, caricaturist, engraver, moralist, raconteur and flâneur. In museums and galleries including The National Gallery, Tate and Chiswick House, we will draw from Hogarth’s paintings, studying in particular his developing interest in how human behaviour can be best displayed. As well as drawing from his work in these London collections, we will also draw in contemporary urban settings, creating a rich fusion of art history, methodology and observational drawing.
