We will then move to England to explore the comic art of William Hogarth and the portrait traditions of Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough. As we complete the series we will explore the grand tour and Neoclassicism in Rome, and the Venetian view painter Canaletto and Pietro Longhi, a painter of Venetian aristocratic life.
