William Hogarth

English painter and engraver

Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Hogarth is best known for his satirical engravings. He was an important figure in the establishment of an English school of painting, both through the quality of his own work and through campaigns to improve the status of the artist in England. By publishing engravings after his own paintings, he showed other artists that they could be independent of wealthy patrons.
