A visit to

Tate Britain

to view the exhibition

Hogarth and Europe

Thursday 3rd March 2022

Rosemary Chapman writes:

Today a group of us have been up to Tate Britain by coach to see the exhibition 'Hogarth and Europe'.  It is a very large exhibition, collected from many sources which took all of two hours to enjoy, especially as the intense details of these works, both by Hogarth and his European contemporaries are so intriguing and satiric that each work needs a lot of close up appreciation.  The visit started with a lecture in their fine Lecture Hall by a recognised authority on Hogarth and his contemporaries.  She was a brilliant and amusing speaker and primed us very well to get the best out of looking at the paintings and engravings afterwards.

We are very grateful to Gwen Wright for arranging the trip and for giving us the opportunity to see such fascinating and famous art works.
