Hogarth: Life in Progress

Hogarth: Life in Progress

On a warm Friday night in 1732, a rowdy group of friends set out on a ‘peregrination’ that took them through the scurrilous streets of Georgian London. Among them was an up-and-coming engraver and painter, just beginning to make a name for himself: William Hogarth. Returning to BIF after the success of her book Peterloo and the film of the same name on which she was historical advisor, Jacqueline illuminates an ambitious self-made man, philanthropist, satirist, devoted husband and an artist who aspired to the highest principles even while charting humanity’s lowest vices.
