William Hogarth was the greatest English artist and interpreter of the social scene in the eighteenth century. He satirized all aspects of life, high and low, and left us a vivid set of images of his times. Taking as a starting point Hogarth's complex, teeming images we shall examine the rich and teeming history of England in an age of great exuberance, achievement and change. Like Hogarth, we shall be interested in the stark contrasts betwen rich and poor, modern courtship and prostitution, drunkenness and (relative) sobriety, war and peace, and notions of beauty and ugliness.
