Hogarth’s drawings: sketches, studies and plans – a talk by Sheila O’Connell
This talk has been postponed until November 10th
A talk on William Hogarth’s drawings by Sheila O’Connell
£8 talk only, £10 with a drink
Some artists draw constantly, filling sketchbooks with records of whatever they see and planning their paintings with detailed studies before putting brush to canvas. This wasn’t William Hogarth’s way. He didn’t make a great number of drawings, but those that survive (about 100) reflect his energy and individualism. The focus will be on Industry and Idleness where drawings show Hogarth ‘thinking on paper’.
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.
