Supper Talk - The Life and Work of Hogarth

Two Hogarths are displayed in Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill: Masterpieces from Horace Walpole's Collection. Art historian John Iddon will give a talk on the life and work of Hogarth followed by a 2 course supper.

Possibly the first universally acknowledged ‘great’ British-born artist, Hogarth demonstrated his genius in an astonishing variety of forms: engraving, satirical ‘progresses’ like Marriage a la Mode, portraits and ‘history’ paintings. He was a determined and pugnacious man battling for artists’ rights and for recognition of home-grown artists in a climate of prejudice in favour of their continental counterparts. He was a good man (for example a major supporter of Thomas Coram’s new Foundling Hospital) and an exposer of greed, corruption and hypocrisy. Above all he can be enjoyed as a lover and illustrator of the seething vitality of eighteenth century London life.

Event starts at 7pm. Complimentary glass of fizz between 6.30pm and 7pm for members of the Friends of Strawberry Hill on the presentation of their membership card.

This is Friends of Strawberry Hill event and raises much need funds to maintain the Grade I listed building and historic site, as well as supporting its work in the community.

Please note this event is only suitable for people aged 18 years and over
