'Father, I have sinned against heaven...and am no more worthy to be called thy son', 19th century
'Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son', 19th century. Biblical scene, from Luke 15: 21: 'And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, "Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet".' The Parable of the Prodigal Son: the younger of two sons squanders his fortune and is forced to return home empty-handed, ready to beg his father to accept him back as a servant. To his surprise, he is not scorned by his father but is welcomed back with celebration. Engraving after 'The Return of the Prodigal Son', an early 17th century painting by Leonello Spada, in the Louvre Museum, Paris.

'A Rake's Progress - 8: The Mad House', 1733. Artist: William Hogarth
'A Rake's Progress - 8: The Mad House', 1733. True to his nature Tom Rakewell has run through a vast fortune through indulgence in all the luxuries of modern living. He has lived riotously, both gambling and whoring. He has married a rich old widow and been ruined a second time. Now the rake is raving mad and shackled for his own safety in Bedlam, the London lunatic asylum. He is comforted by Sarah Young, the poor girl that he had seduced with a false promise of marriage while he was a student at Oxford. Behind, two fashionable women have come to view the hospital's inmates. From William Hogarth, by Austin Dobson. [Hachette Et Cie, Paris, 1904]
