This beautifully illustrated book examines the whole of Hogarth's career, from his beginnings as a young and ambitious engraver in the 1720s through to his rise to fame as a painter and printmaker in the 1730s and 1740s, and the crystallisation of his aesthetic theories in the treatise "The Analysis of Beauty," published in 1753. Where most previous considerations of this prolific artist have concentrated on just a part of his multi-faceted career, here every aspect is included: his remarkable canvases, ranging from elegant conversation pieces to salacious brothel scenes, and from early pictorial sequences such as "A Rake's Progress" to the "Election" series he produced in the last decade of his life; his vibrant drawings and sketches; and the numerous engraved works for which he is perhaps most famous, including "Industry and Idleness", "Gin Lane", "Beer Street" and "The Four Stages of Cruelty."
