Discover the nature of these extraordinarily named characters in this talk about William Hogarth’s Marriage a la Mode series from the National Gallery in London. We will familiarise ourselves with these amazing characters and their stories. We will compare the painted and the printed versions of the series and observe and analyse the artist’s use of pictures within the pictures hanging on the walls within the picture space and discuss their meanings.
