British Painter William Hogarth (Of The London Roundabout), Was Born This Day, 320-Years Ago, November 10, 1697.
Given my British upbringing, I am, of course, familiar with William Hogarth and his work.
I do not consider him one of my iconic artists, but I do enjoy and appreciate his work — in all of its facets.
If, however, the truth be told, I know him MOST, and think of him, in terms of THE London roundabout. Over the years I have spent many lifetimes in and around that roundabout — stuck in London traffic. Aaahhh, the Hogarth Roundabout. What a landmark.
