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’.
