Gentle, childlike smiles through the eyes and hands of William Hogarth

Londoner William Hogarth was an artist heavily influenced by 18th century life, culture, and his middle-class upbringing. This painting is a group portrait of the Graham children, whose father was King George II’s apothecary. The youngest child in the portrait passed away even before Hogarth finished the painting, but his smile will shine forever. Read more about Hogarth here: www.artble.com/artists/william_hogarth
