About

WILLIAM HOGRTH (1697 - 1764) MR. GARRICK IN THE CHARACTER OF RICHARD THE 3RD (Shakespear Act 5 Scene 7) (Paulson 1970.165 ii/ii; Paulson 1989.165 ii/ii;, Dobson and Armstrong p. 207) Etching and Engraving, lower left Painted by Wm Hogarth lower right Engraved by Wm. Hogarth & C. Grignion. Published according to Act of Parliament June 20, 1746. Very fine impression on laid paper - the fine lines printing well, e.g. the face and outstretched hand. Image 16 1/2 x 20 5/8 inches. Trimmed to 1/8 of the platemark and tipped to a support sheet that is 18 x 22 3/8 inches The Metropolitan Museum in NY provides this summary of the print "Hogarth represents his close friend, the actor David Garrick, as Richard III waking from a vision of the ghosts of those he murdered to attain the throne. The scene occurs in act 5, scene 7 of Shakespeare's play, just before the Battle of Bosworth Field where Richard is defeated and the Tudors attain the throne. Based on a 1745 painting at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, the print conveys Garrick's dynamic ability to bring Shakespeare to life for his contemporaries"
