Note on Art

Subject

A personal note from LeRoy Neiman on the works of English artist William Hogarth.

Description

This note from LeRoy Neiman is one of a selection the artist took on William Hogarth. Hogarth, an English satirist, had a profound interest in the common man and a playful scorn for the British aristocracy. This record contains a list of Hogarth’s works, including The Gate of Calais or The Roast Beef of Old England (1748), Cockpit (1759), and Shrimp Girl (1740-45); Neiman had a particular interest in Shrimp Girl. Scribbled out on the notecard's reverse, Neiman made a list of his own works. Although the parallel between the artists' respective pieces is not apparent, the form implies kinship. The record is one of many in which Neiman positions himself in relation to Hogarth.
