Dave Parker on Hogarth in Kent

Please note this event is operating at a lower capacity due to current restrictions and is now sold out. We hope to release more seats after the relaxing of rules on 22 June. If you would like to join our waiting list, please click 'book now' and leave your details when prompted. 

Join Canterbury Auction Galleries' Managing Director David Parker for an insight into the world of Hogarth, looking at how we can relate to many of the social issues of his day.

David Parker is a Military Antiques specialist and Historian. His interest in historic diaries brought him to the Forrest Diary, written in 1732, describing the journey of a young Hogarth and friends across North Kent. Keen to experience this journey first hand David followed in Hogarth’s footsteps revelling in the artists ability to graphically depict the social issues of the day and discovering details of the Kent landscape that remains unchanged nearly 300 years later.
