My first book was about William Hogarth and the Freemasons. During my research, I discovered many sexual details within Hogarth’s work which made for a salacious sequel!
I published this under the eye-catching title – ‘The Fine Art of Dickpics and Selfies’, even though it is a serious study of Hogarth’s phallic inclusions. Then all the book shops shut (!) and so I spent my Covid isolation writing a third volume.
I had kept coming across examples of modern reworkings of some of Hogarth’s paintings. Book #3 is called ‘Hogarth’s Copycats’ and includes this hilarious version of the artist and his dog Trump.
I also found that a copy of a Hogarth print had been used to satirize the present situation concerning Jeffrey Epstein.
Hogarth’s Copy Cats includes many amazing reworkings of Hogarth’s most famous progresses.
