Man with expression of horror, 18th century? Creator: Unknown
Man with expression of horror, 18th century? 'Horrour causes the eye brows to be knit, & sinks a great deal more; the eye balls placed at the bottom of the eyes are half cover'd by the lower eye lids, the mouth is half open, but closer in the middle than the sides, which being drawn back, makes wrinkles in ye cheeks, the muscles & the vains are strong.'

John Wilkes, English politician, 1762-1763 (1895). Artist: Unknown
John Wilkes, English politician, 1762-1763 (1895). Study for a cartoon Hogarth produced in 1763. Wilkes is wearing a wig that Hogarth has fashioned into two horns. He holds a cap (entitled liberty in the final cartoon) that Hogarth has positioned to make it look like a halo. On the table are copies of his newspaper The North Briton. In 1762 Hogarth had published a satire, The Times, that, for Hogarth, was unusually anti-war. It angered many politicians, including John Wilkes. Therefore Wilkes attacked Hogarth in The North Briton, by depicting him as an old fool. In response Hogarth produced this engraving. A print from The Magazine of Art, Cassell and Company, Limited, London, Paris and Melbourne, 1895.
