Four times of the day. (Set of 4) - Antique Print from 1822

Genuine antique
dated:

1820

Description:

Plate 1: Morning – Depicts the various activities of the people of Convent Garden on a winter’s morning.

Plate 2: Noon – This print sets the boisterous, robust lives of the English proletariat against the artificial conduct of the fashionable, affected French residing in England. It is 11:30 on the spire of St. Giles-in-the-Fields.

Plate 3: Evening – This plate depicts the “entertainment” of a middle-class family in which traditional dominance roles have been reversed.

Plate 4: Night – “Night”, the most turbulent of this series, depicts the common city vices, miseries, violence and turmoil. The oak branches announce that it is May 29th, the day on which restoration of Charles II was celebrated.

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.
