Lewis Walpole Library, 154 Main Street
Cynthia Roman, Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Paintings at the Lewis Walpole Library and co-curator of the current exhibition will talk about “James Gillray’s Hogarthian Progress.” Sequential narration in satiric prints is most famously associated with the “modern moral subjects” of William Hogarth (1697–1764). James Gillray (1756–1815), celebrated for his innovative single-plate satires, was among the most accomplished printmakers to adopt Hogarthian sequential narration even as he transformed it according to his unique vision. This exhibition presents a number of Gillray’s Hogarthian progresses alongside some selected prints by Hogarth himself.
Space is limited. Registration required.
PLEASE NOTE: This program will take place at the Yale Lewis Walpole Library at 154 Main Street (Directions: http://www.library.yale.edu/walpole/about/directions.html).
