William Hogarth was an English painter and engraver in the 1700’s. His most famous engravings are critical of English culture and his satire was directed at all social classes as well as religion and government. Many of his works are moralizing in nature, warning against the ills of British society at the time and show the exaggerated and disastrous results of immoral choices and actions. The works are elaborate, and the actions of main characters are often echoed in details hidden in background scenes, surroundings and secondary characters and animals. Dogs, in particular, are used by the artist to help tell his stories.
