As the Age of Enlightenment dawned on the dim streets of London England in the late 18th century, scholars and artists alike were eager to reform those still left in the dark. William Hogarth (1697- 1764), presented here today, is most well known for his detailed and playful narrative etchings of London's mischief, sin and the resulting cautionary tales. As the Early Modern Period was one of the most rapidly changing times in English history, Hogath's work reflected enlightenment themes of morality and political commentary influenced by the increased English urban population and access to printed materials. As the social classes further stratified, new "high" and "low" cultures were exposed. Hogarth too wished to expose what immoral activities were plaguing the back allies and sometimes the main streets of London. These curated prints highlight the progression of mostly upstanding citizens through subtle sin and deviance to the madness of the uncontrolled spaces lower classes of London. Hogarth's humorous narratives told in these selected works present not only the period's moral code of conduct, but a glance into the mischievous lives of Early Modern Londoners. These prints are most certainly an enjoyable representation of social, political and economic commentary of this period.
