William Hogarth, Evening


William Hogarth (1697 - 1764)

RA Collection: Art

The third plate of a set of four Times of Day, derived from paintings made by Williiam Hogarth in 1736-7 (reversing the images in the process) and published by Hogarth in 1738. The corresponding painting is in a private collection.

Each of the four scenes depicts a different area of London. Evening shows a family returning back to the city after a day's outing at Sadler's Wells in (then semi-rural) Islington. This is the only plate in the series not engraved by Hogarth himself but by one of his favoured printmakers, Bernard Baron.
