William Hogarth: Charity and the Art Market

November 10, 2018

At HeniTalks, there is a fascinating 8-minute video lecture discussing the artist William Hogarth and his role in establishing the first public charity in England, and the first public art gallery.  Click on the image below; it is well worth the time.

 

I spent my early pre-teen years in Chiswick, Hogarth’s hometown, and we were taught that Hogarth was a big deal. So he has fascinated me for a long time.
