Sex, Satire and Sensibility: An Expose of 18th Century Art

William Hogarth: A European Master in Disguise

Hogarth was famously chauvinistic, and is supposed to have had a particular aversion to all things French. Hogarth liked to project this image, but his effective invention of British art was founded upon a profound knowledge of French and European paintings and prints.

Robin Simon, FSA, is Editor of The British Art Journal, having been Editor of Apollo magazine and a tenured university academic for many years before that. His new book, Hogarth, France and British Art: the rise of the arts in eighteenth-century Britain, is published by Paul Holberton, Jan 2007.
