KIRKUS REVIEW

Especially equipped to portray the life of the great 18th century English painter is Quennell, whose other work has shown a special affection for the period. The son of a poor teacher, Hogarth was a self made man. He lacked a delicate introspection, was part of the coarse, hearty enthusiasms of the age, and his paintings recorded its rowdy spirit with a sharp sense of realism. A revealing study to reward the special interest.
