The Anglo-Danish Society

Zoom event - Lars Tharp and Hogarth - 21 February 6.30pm 2022


Tate Britain’s current exhibition ‘Hogarth and Europe’ runs until 22nd March 2022. There is much to learn about William Hogarth, and Lars Tharp is going to tell us all about it. Lars is the famous Dane on The Antiques Roadshow and a fellow Anglo-Danish Society member. He is an expert on Hogarth and contributor to the exhibition at Tate. Lars plans to enlighten us, in his usually humorous and insightful way, about the big and small questions about Hogarth. 

Was he ‘England’s first and greatest native painter’?

Was he a chauvinistic champion of ‘Englishness’ and a hater of all things foreign?

“How seriously should we take some of the Tate exhibition’s wall texts suggesting Hogarth’s links with the empire and with complicity in the sins of slavery?”

Join us for a convivial encounter of all things British that Hogarth depicts, including the porcelains, earthenware and stoneware (many infiltrating Europe from East India and China! – Nothing new there then!).
