English caricature by William Hograrth, 19th century impression.
DESCRIPTION

Details

Engraving, originally published 1738, this impression circa 1825. Unlike the other scenes in The Four Times of Day, this composition includes a wide-open sky and rolling hills. The glorious sunset suggests a summer evening. The location is Islington, then at the northern edge of London. In the later seventeenth century the area had established itself as a popular retreat from the city. The stone entrance of Sadler's Wells Theatre can be seen on the right. By the 1730s, the theatre was satirised for having a down-market clientele consisting of tradesmen and their overbearing, snobbish wives. The focus of Hogarth's composition is a dyer and his family strolling wearily across a footbridge by the New River. Waterstain and spot outside platemark.
