Fantasy, Fiction, and Fact in Popular Illustration: 1750–1900
5.3.14 – 8.3.14
Graphics Gallery

This exhibition will explore the emergence of satire as a printed medium of art in 18th- and 19th-century Britain. Depictions of British life in caricatures and prints illuminate social concerns and sentiments of the period. Artists William Hogarth, George Cruikshank, and Frederick Barnard will be featured, offering a rare occasion to see their work together, despite the fact that their topics, style, media, nationality, and chronology situate them in close proximity to each other. This exhibition's guest curator is Dr. Sarah Lippert, who is an Assistant Professor of Art History at the University of Michigan-Flint. An accompanying catalogue of the works will be available.
