The Gate of Calais,

EDITORS COMMENTS
an etching by the renowned British artist, engraver, and satirical painter, William Hogarth (1697-1764), captures the bustling activity of a European harbor scene in this intricately detailed work. The image, created in the 18th century and published by The Iberian Illustration in 1888, portrays a diverse group of people gathered around the gate of Calais, a city located in northern France on the English Channel. At the center of the composition, a group of undernourished English soldiers, hungrily eyeing a large piece of beef being transported through the gate, stand in stark contrast to the well-fed Friar and French soldiers on the other side. The beef, which is being carried on the back of a cart, is an enticing sight for the English soldiers, who have been "transported" from their homeland and are longing for a taste of familiar food. The scene is filled with a sense of energy and movement, as people and goods pass through the gate, and the hustle and bustle of the port is reflected in the busy street scene beyond. The etching is further enhanced by the use of color, which adds depth and texture to the image, bringing the people and buildings to life. Hogarth's satirical touch is evident in the expression of the Friar, who seems to relish the sight of the hungry English soldiers and the opportunity to sell them his wares. The artist's keen observational skills and ability to capture the nuances of human behavior make "The Gate of Calais" a fascinating glimpse into the past and a testament to Hogarth's artistic genius.
