Overview

The eighteenth century was a period of change, bringing both great wealth and poverty to society. The problems which emerged in London, such as drunkenness, gambling and abandoned children, are all addressed in the works of William Hogarth whose use of wit and satire in his paintings draws attention to many of the social issues of the day.
