William Hogarth Prints from the Madden Arnholz Collection

The Madden Arnholz Collection, comprising some 2,000 Old Master Prints, was donated to the Royal Hospital Kilmainham in 1988 by Claire Madden, in memory of her daughter, Étaín, and son-in-law Dr Friedrich Arnholz. This collection of prints, dating from 1500 to the late 19th century, includes works by such masters as Brueghel, Dürer, Goya, and Rembrandt and is particularly strong in work by William Hogarth. This exhibition will focus on the works of this celebrated English painter and engraver, well-known for his brilliant satirical prints drawing on the preoccupying themes of his time. The Collection includes a number of complete sets of his most popular series, including Marriage-á-la-Mode, A Rake’s Progress and A Harlot’s Progress.
