ProgressTo mark the 250th anniversary of William Hogarth's death, the Foundling Museum presents Progress, bringing together for the first time three great responses to his eternally modern moral tale, A Rake's Progress. David Hockney's Rake's Progress, 1961-3, Yinka Shonibare's Diary of a Victorian Dandy, 1998 and Grayson Perry's The Vanity of Small Differences, 2012 will be shown alongside the original 1735 prints and joined by new work from the artist Jessie Brennan, commissioned by the Foundling for this exhibition in response to Hogarth's masterpiece.

 

About The Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum is one of London's real hidden treasures. Originally established in 1739 as a hospital which looked after abandoned children, the museum now tells their story. Using oral testimony, original artefacts and photographs, their history is explored and compared to the lives of contemporary children. More about The Foundling Museum
