From’ The works of William Hogarth from the original plates restored by James Heath : with the addition of many subjects not before collected, to which are prefixed a biographical essay on the genius and productions of Hogarth, and explanations of the subjects of the plates, by John Nichols.

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.
