A Space for Dialogue 94


The prints in this exhibition reflect William Hogarth’s (1697–1764) pointed, shrewd, and satirical social and political commentary. His work appealed to a broad public, but this popularity prompted questions into the ethical issues around the production and distribution of prints, the right to profit from artistic labor, and the nature of what constitutes an original work of art.

A Space for Dialogue: Fresh Perspectives on the Permanent Collection from Dartmouth’s Students, founded with support from the Class of 1948, is made possible with generous endowments from the Class of 1967, Bonnie and Richard Reiss Jr. ’66, and Pamela J. Joyner '79.
