Bristol Museum and Gallery launches the largest collection of Hogarth works that the South West has ever seen.

Set to be the most comprehensive show of the artist's work ever to take place here in the South West, Tate Britain lends its collection of oil paintings by William Hogarth to Bristol Museum and Art Gallery.

Widely regarded as one of the most important individuals in the history of art, Hogarth was a painter, printmaker and artistic pioneer known for a style the spans portraiture to satire, as well as for tackling a range of subjects and issues in his work.
