Event Description:
Please join us for a lecture by Frédéric Ogée, Professor of English Studies at the Université Paris-Diderot (Paris 7), France and world-renowned expert on William Hogarth, entitled Sequence, "Progress", and Englishness in the Works of William Hogarth and Other British Artists. The lecture will take place at the Center for British and Irish Studies, 5th floor of the Norlin Library, M549 and will be preceded by a reception in the same location at 4:30.

Frédéric Ogée is Professor of English at Université Paris Diderot, and Executive Vice President for International Affairs. His main areas of research are 18th-century aesthetics, literature and art, on which he has often lectured in several European and North American universities and published several volumes and articles, including two collections of essays on Hogarth. He is also the co-editor of the Word & Image journal INTERFACES. In 2006-07, he curated the first-ever exhibition on William Hogarth for the Louvre, and contributed an essay to the catalogue published by Tate Publishing. Some of his recent publications include: ‘Better in France? The circulation of ideas across the Channel in the 18th century (Bucknell University Press, 2005), Diderot and European Culture, a collection of essays (Oxford: The Voltaire Foundation, 2006, re-issued 2009), and J.M.W. Turner, Les Paysages absolus (Paris, Hazan, 2010). He has also contributed to the 3-volume The History of British Art, (Tate Publishing and Yale Center for British Art, 2008). In March 2012, he co-organized a conference at the William Andrews Clark Library at UCLA on “Taste and the five senses”. His current projects include a monograph on Hogarth and the English school of art, and a History of British art in French.

The exhibition Hockney and Hogarth: Selections from the CU Art Museum's Collection of British Art builds on the remarkable strengths of the CU Art Museum’s collection of British art and features David Hockney’s first major print series, A Rake’s Progress (1961-63), alongside the 1735 series by William Hogarth that inspired it.

A large selection of additional works from the 119 William Hogarth engravings included in the CU Art Museum’s permanent collection are also on view, such as the complete Marriage A-la-Mode and The Four Times of Day series, selections from the Industry and Idleness and The Four Stages of Cruelty series, the plates created for Hogarth’s aesthetic treatise The Analysis of Beauty, as well as numerous individual prints. Also on view are published Hogarth works from the Special Collections Department, Norlin Library, University Libraries as well as a video of the 1975 Glyndebourne Festival Opera production of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress, with stage and costume designs by David Hockney, allowing audiences to experience a major performance inspired by the similarly titled Hogarth and Hockney print series.
