William Hogarth 1697 – 1764 Linda Smith Monday 12 February 2018

Hogarth is nowadays remembered as a talented satirist, however he was extremely ambitious in other fields, including portraiture, history painting and art theory.  A wide variety of images demonstrate his exceptional originality and unparalleled eye for absurdity and human weakness.

Linda Smith holds two first-class degrees in Art History. She is an experienced guide and lecturer at Tate Britain, Tate Modern and the Dulwich Picture Gallery, and lectures to secondary school audiences and independent arts societies.
