William Hogarth's (after whom the adjective hogarthian was coined) country house. The garden reflects a more domestic and intimate side of the artist's personality, a gentlenesse rarely present in his paintings and illustrations.The mulberry tree,legend says, was planted by Hogarth himself.
Hogarth's former residence, due to security reasons, is currently not accessible to the upper level, so visitors can only enter three rooms including shops, reception, if including the small foyer, there are four rooms. As the house has been resold many hands, there are no artists'cultural relics except the pictures and photos that have been collected.
The gardens of Hogarth's former residence are in a mess because of decoration. The upper floors of the rooms are not open. Visits are free. A permanent room exhibition gives a detailed introduction to Hogarth's life. If you want to visit, it's better to pay attention to the official website of Hogarth's former residence and see if the decoration is over.
Hogarth's former residence, built in 1713, was rated as the first-class protected building in Britain. It was the residence of the painter Hogarth from 1749 to 1764. Hogarth is a famous British satirist and pioneer of European comic strips, but here he paints many idyllic scenes from the window, which he calls "a country house by the Thames River". Now it has been transformed into a small museum and art gallery.
Hogarth's former residence has a very beautiful architectural structure, spacious streets, on both sides stand straight maple trees, very beautiful.
A good tourist resort, want to feel the nature to see it. I suggest that you can go and see it when you are free.
The house is well preserved and shows the scenes of Hogarth's life.
