Hogarth’s House Autumn Talks Series: Talk 1, At Home with the Hogarths, by Val Bott

In this illustrated talk, local historian Val Bott will draw upon the research behind the At Home with the Hogarths special exhibition. Elizabeth Einberg’s catalogue of Hogarth’s paintings, published in 2016, provided rich detail about family members, servants and the Hogarths’ circle. Val will introduce the audience to these fascinating people with more detail and colour than could be included in the exhibition. At Home with the Hogarths is a free special exhibition running until 6 November.

Val Bott researched the friends and neighbours, supporting the displays seen in the permanent galleries refurbished in 2012 and for her Hogarth’s House book from Scala Publications.

Each ticket is £10 per person*, and we’re running a special multi-buy OFFER where you can book the 3 tickets for the price of 2 – that’s £20 per person in total*! Plus, if you get the multi-buy offer AND attend all the 3 talks, you get a FREE glass of wine to mark the end of the series on the third talk**.

The galleries will remain open to visitors until the talk begins. The bar will be open before and after the talk with beer, wine and soft drinks. Please keep drinks in the Learning Studio.

Hogarth’s House, located in Chiswick, is the former home of the 18th century artist and satirist William Hogarth. It is owned and managed by the London Borough of Hounslow.
