"Undoubtedly, the first great painter to hail from England, William Hogarth's work was a witty and brilliant satirical depiction of English society. This was a society with flaws and Hogarth was not afraid to condemn, as well as praise. With these characteristics combined, Hogarth was able to produce his greatest works, modern moral subjects including The rake's progress and Marriage-à-la-mode which are still admired for their humor and vitality."--Container.
