William Hogarth and 18th Century Print Culture

This site is an online version of an exhibition to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Hogarth's birth. Held at Northwestern University in April-June 1997, the exhibition reassessed Hogarth's satirical graphical work in thematic sections demonstrating his concern for the ills of the modern city, the lives of professional women, and issues of theatricality, race, class, and taste. In addition to seven sections of prints exploring these themes, the site also offers an overview of the technical process used by Hogarth and his contemporaries to etch and engrave their prints.
