Hogarth and drawing

Last week I finished a course on Hogarth which I did at the Prince’s (recently renamed Royal) Drawing School. I loved it. We saw prints and drawings by Hogarth at Tate Britain, the National Gallery, Hogarth’s House, the Draper’s Hall and also went to Somerset House and Westfield (!) and drew from them. Westfield as it is the kind of place that Hogarth would have loved – with many people sitting around all day staring into space. As this is the  250th anniversary of Hogarth’s death there are several other small exhibitions round London. In the British Museum, Tate Britain, Cartoon Museum and the Foundlings Museum. Our visit to Barts Hospital couldn’t take place so I must go there as well as the Soane Museum.
