One Man and his Dog – Hogarth and the Dogs in his Life and his Art

by Lars Tharp

Thursday 18 April 2019

 

A stroll through the life, times and works of William Hogarth in the company of his famous pugs -plus a whole kennel of his other canines, in paint, print and clay. The pugnacious Georgian Pug -a very different animal from today’s ‘best in show’ - became Hogarth’s ‘familiar’ and his personal badge. Even today it pops up in the works of contemporary artists, affectionate references to England’s great artist.

 

The Painter and his Pug, William Hogarth, 1745

 

Marriage A-la-Mode: 1, The Marriage Settlement, William Hogarth, 1745
