Hogarth's Marriage A-La-Mode
Hogarth's Marriage A-La-Mode explores one of Hogarth’s best known series of paintings that took the upper echelons of society as its subject. This is a re-issue with a fresh design featuring Judy Egerton’s engaging text and includes a free DVD narrated by Alan Bennett.
The book and DVD set of Hogarth's Marriage A-La-Mode examines the story of Marriage A-la-Mode, a six part series describing a marriage arranged between the son of a spendthrift nobleman who needs cash and the daughter of a rich City of London merchant who wants to buy social status. Love between the bride and bridegroom never develops; and their discordant lives progress through adultery and venereal disease to murder, execution and suicide.
The author, Judy Egerton, explains the multiple visual clues and symbols employed by Hogarth to create this intriguing narrative on the questionable morals of the upper classes of the late eighteenth century.
