Barts 900 – Lars Tharp

Harlots, Rakes, and Crashing China – Monday 23 May 2022 – Our hybrid event featured historian and broadcaster Lars Tharp in conversation with Robert Treharne Jones.

Harlots, Rakes, and Crashing China

Our first live event of 2022 featured Lars Tharp and Robert Treharne Jones, who discussed William Hogarth’s progress from the Thames to Barts and beyond.

Lars is a noted ceramics historian, appearing on the Antiques Roadshow since 1986, during which time he has developed a parallel enthusiasm for the works of William Hogarth in whose images Chinese porcelain tumbles off tea tables, or a stall of crockery awaits total destruction under the shadow of a falling stage. Lars later wrote ‘Hogarth’s China’, and was an author/ contributor to the recent major Exhibition at the Tate Gallery ‘Hogarth and Europe’.
