Information

An early 18th Century English school portrait of a Pastor portrayed with elongated wig, white stock and black gown.

Oil on canvas.

Sitter and artist unknown.  The portrait is however clearly influenced by William Hogarth.

William Hogarth FRSA 10 November 1697 – 26 October 1764) was an English painter, printmaker, pictorial satiristsocial critic, and editorial cartoonist. His work ranged from realistic portraiture to comic strip-like series of pictures called "modern moral subjects", perhaps best known being his moral series A Harlot's ProgressA Rake's Progress and Marriage A-la-Mode. Knowledge of his work is so pervasive that satirical political illustrations in this style are often referred to as "Hogarthian".

Hogarth was born in London to a poor middle-class family. In his youth he took up an apprenticeship where he specialised in engraving. His father underwent periods of mixed fortune, and was at one time imprisoned in lieu of outstanding debts; an event that is thought to have informed William's paintings and prints with a hard edge.

Influenced by French and Italian painting and engraving, Hogarth's works are mostly satirical caricatures, sometimes bawdily sexual, mostly of the first rank of realistic portraiture. They became widely popular and mass-produced via prints in his lifetime, and he was by far the most significant English artist of his generation.

Condition - as per images.  Cleaned and re-varnished.  Two minor patche repairs verso.  Presented in a period gesso frame of plain form.
