Said to be a self-portrait, by William Hogarth, circa 1740

Head study, with a grey wig and a white jabot, oil on canvas, rectangular with corners cut 7.3cm by 7cm.

William Hogarth (1697-1764) was initially an engraver. He became a print maker and a fine portrait painter, but he is perhaps best known for his works of pictorial satire, his biting social commentary and criticism in his moral works.
