          Artist details

          English painter and engraver William Hogarth was most remembered for his satirical engravings of low-life scenes. Contemporary drama and novels provided Hogarth with inspiration and often explored themes of vanity, corruption, betrayal and death. He adopted a more refined painting style around 1745, before targetting his subjects to the lower classes with industrial and street scenes.
