William Hogarth (1697 - 1764) - the first internationally known English artist

During 2000, why not visit one of London's more unusual 18th century houses - Hogarth's House in Chiswick? Passed daily by thousands on the A4 as they leave London, few stop to savour the intimate atmosphere of this charming house - the country home of the painter, engraver and satirist William Hogarth for 15 years until the night before his death in 1764. Once a rural retreat, the house and its delightful walled garden - containing an ancient mulberry tree - form an oasis in West London, where you can experience something of the Georgian world in which one of our greatest English artists lived.

Come and see examples of the artist's wonderfully inventive work - including the wickedly satirical stories told in The Rake's Progress, The Harlot's Progress and Marriage-a-la-Mode. Displays recount the story of Hogarth's life and explain his strongly held convictions, including his abhorrence of cruelty to animals and his opinions on drink - expressed in his famous scenes contrasting the abject squalor of Gin Lane with the prosperity and contentment of Beer Street
