William Hogarth Hand Colored Etching Gin Lane 1800 Pub. by G. G. & J Robinson T. Cook Engraver

William Hogarth (10 November 1697 – 26 October 1764) was an English painter, print maker, pictorial satirist, social critic, and editorial cartoonist.
His work was… “Influenced by French and Italian painting and engraving, Hogarth’s works are mostly satirical caricatures, sometimes bawdily sexual, mostly of the first rank of realistic portraiture. They became widely popular and mass-produced via prints in his lifetime”

I have two pieces, done circa 1800 and are very sought after, The Beer Street and Gin Lane have become very collectible over the past years. I am happy to have both in hand colored versions done after his death.

I will be selling them separate but they will make a great set. Please feel free to inquire
