Description:

Plate 2.

Paul before Felix, showing St Paul on trial before Felix, governor of Caesarea; Paul to left with arms raised, Felix sitting with his wife Drusilla and two priests on a dais at centre, one sitting uncomfortably with his chin in his hand, two clerks in front of the bench at which St Paul stands; to right, the orator Tertullus holding a scroll and leaning on a lectern; a soldier to left and two figures carrying fascae either side of the dais.

Artist:

William Hogarth (1697-1794)

Hogarth was born in London, the son of an unsuccessful schoolmaster and writer from Westmoreland. After apprenticeship to a goldsmith, he began to produce his own engraved designs from 1710. He later took up oil painting, starting with small portrait groups called conversation pieces. He went on to create a series of paintings satirising contemporary customs, but based on earlier Italian prints, of which the first was ‘The Harlot’s Progress’ (1731), and perhaps the most famous ‘The Rake’s Progress’. His engravings were so plagiarised that he lobbied for the Copyright Act of 1735 as protection for writers and artists.
