The family situation of the Hogarths in William's childhood was not without a certain level of education, but there was a lack of material resources. William Hogarth learned early on to contribute to the livelihood. It was not until late that he began an apprenticeship as a engraver and silver engraver and commissioned on behalf of his teacher. He found no fulfillment in pure craftsmanship and had the desire for an artistic activity.

He began studying painting in liberal London and made contact with court painter James Thornhill , where Hogarths refined his drawing and painting. William Hogarth found in his mentor's house not only inspiration, but also the love of the daughter of his artist's father. The two married at a time when William was already an independent engraver. Influenced by the privations of his childhood, he developed a great sociocritical sense and created works in which there was no lack of criticism. He presented the mirror to society, thus laying the foundation for the cartoon's stylistic device.

The artist became famous through image sequences in which he judged social morality. For the laid table he made illustrations and portraits and was later appointed court painter.

The graphic sequence A Harlot's Progress about the life of a young girl leading from prostitution, illness to death made William Hogarth famous. © Meisterdrucke
