Talk starts at 7pm. House and museum open from 6pm for exclusive access.
Hogarth was not a specialist animal painter (like e.g. George Stubbs or John Wootton) but he could paint any animal he wanted with natural force. His relationship to the animals he put in his pictures, however, was different from anyone else’s. None of them are merely portraits, but are there to comment, either subtly or directly, on his subject matter and on the circumstances and views of his sitters.
Elizabeth Einberg was for 28 years Assistant Keeper of the Historic British Collection of the Tate Gallery (now Tate Britain), specialising in 18th century British painting and Hogarth in particular. After retiring in 1998, she compiled the first comprehensive catalogue of Hogarth’s paintings since 1949, which was published by Yale University and the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art in 2016.
