William Hogarth (1697 - 1764)  is best known for his series paintings of 'modern moral subjects', of which he sold engravings on subscription. The Collection contains the set called 'Marriage A-la-Mode'. Although pugnaciously hostile to Continental art, he succumbed to French influence. In 1753 he published his 'Analysis of Beauty', in which he stresses the importance of the serpentine line.Hogarth was born in London, the son of an unsuccessful schoolmaster and writer from Westmoreland. After apprenticeship to a goldsmith, he began to produce his own engraved designs in about 1710. He later took up oil painting, starting with small portrait groups called conversation pieces. He went on to create a series of paintings satirising contemporary customs, but based on earlier Italian prints, of which the first was 'The Harlot's Progress' (1731), and perhaps the most famous 'The Rake's Progress'. His engravings were so plagiarised that he lobbied for the Copyright Act of 1735 as protection for writers and artists.During the 1730s Hogarth also developed into an original painter of life-sized portraits, and created the first of several history paintings in the grand manner. 

 

威廉.霍加斯,英国画家、版画家。最著名的是他的“现代道德主题”系列画作,该集合包含“婚姻A-la-Mode”的创作集。尽管他对欧洲大陆艺术颇有抵触,但还是受法国的影响颇大。 1753年,他发表了他的《美丽解析》,其中强调了蛇形线条的重要性。

霍加斯(Hogarth)出生于伦敦,是一位校长兼作家的儿子。年少时学过金匠手艺,他于1710年左右开始制作自己的雕刻设计。后来,他开始从事油画创作,首先是被称为“对话件”的小型肖像系列。后来他创作出一系列讽刺当代流俗的画作,以早期的意大利版画为基础,其中第一幅是《妓女进化论》(1731年),而最著名的当属《钉耙进化论》。

他的雕刻作品非常有特点,常常被人剽窃,以至于他曾经游说设立1735年的《版权法》,以保护作家和艺术家。

在1730年代,霍加斯成为创作真人大小的肖像画的原创画家,并大篇幅创作了一些历史绘画。
