William Hogarth was most famously known for his biting commentary on 18th century manners and morals. A controversial and individualistic character he was driven by a sense for justice and missed no chance to assert his opinion even if he meant he got into a quarrel with his contemporaries.This selection of prints from the gallery's holdings looks at his satire and preoccupation with caricature in his work.The term caricature is defined as a 'grotesque representation of a person by the exaggeration of the characteristic traits in picture, writing or mime'. The gallery will not offer the writing or the mime but the exhibition will consist of some entertaining pictures!
