Hogarth’s House was built in 1700 and is home to an impressive collection of prints and engraving plates once owned by painter and printmaker William Hogarth. Complementing the panelled interiors are a number of 18th century replica pieces of furniture, part of the recreation of the property’s unique atmosphere. At one time it was Hogarth’s country home and a quiet retreat away from his mainstay elsewhere in the city.
Those interested can visit his tomb which is located only a short distance away in St Nicholas’ courtyard. The museum itself has been open since 1904 and the galleries display a varying range of exhibitions throughout the year, enticing people in to discover more about the man responsible for the famous moral series of paintings.
