William Hogarth was a major English painter, printmaker, pictorial satirist, and editorial cartoonist of the 18th century. His work ranged from excellent realistic portraiture to comic strip-like series of pictures called “modern moral subjects.” Much of his work, though at times vicious, poked fun at contemporary politics and customs. Illustrations in such style are often referred to as Hogarthian.
The print size is approximately 11.5 x 9.25 inches.
