EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases William Hogarth's iconic artwork titled "HOGARTH: CRUELTY, 1751. The Four Stages of Cruelty. First Stage of Cruelty". The image captures an engraving after the etching created by Hogarth in 1751. In this thought-provoking piece, Hogarth masterfully depicts the first stage of cruelty through a powerful visual narrative. The scene unfolds on a busy city street filled with English men and women going about their daily lives. Amidst the hustle and bustle, we witness acts of abuse and mistreatment towards animals. A rooster stands helplessly as it is attacked by a mob, symbolizing the inherent violence within society. A dog lies lifeless nearby, its fate sealed due to human cruelty. Meanwhile, a feline looks on with fear and vulnerability, representing innocence at risk. Hogarth's satire shines through as he exposes the dark underbelly of humanity's capacity for cruelty towards creatures that cannot defend themselves. This engraving serves as a stark reminder that such behavior can be found even in civilized societies. The Granger Collection has beautifully captured this significant artwork from Hogarth's series on cruelty, offering viewers an opportunity to reflect upon our treatment of animals throughout history and contemplate how we can strive for compassion and empathy in our own lives.
