Described as the grandfather of political cartoon, William Hogarth was an 18th-century English painter, printmaker and pictorial satirist. He entertained his public with narrative stories in pictures, lifted from the events of the day. Join Lars Tharp, art historian, lecturer and broadcaster in London, on
a two-day serpentine trail of William Hogarth, following his progress from apprentice to England’s pre-eminent artist and social observer.

  • Come face-to-face with Hogarth at the National Portrait Gallery and at Tate Britain
