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.
