Your Self is an exhibition of self-portraits by members of public in response to the enormously sucsessfull Small Self Exhibition of Artists self portraits in tribute to Willaim Hogarth. .
Submissions for the Exhibition were open to the public and many submissions have been included, with particular consideration to submissions from Hounslow residents. The exhibition marks the final stage in our tribute to Hogarth 250 years after his death.
Hogarth bought the house to act as his family’s country refuge, a weekend and summer home, away from the noise of his other home in what is now Leicester Square.
The Hogarths extended the house and enjoyed the fruit trees and nut walk in the walled garden. Stepping through the gate you will see the ancient mulberry tree - the Hogarths are said to have made mulberry pies for the Foundling children who stayed with them.
Hogarth had a ‘painting room’ at the bottom of the garden where he was working until a few days before his death.
The restoration project steering group from the William Hogarth Trust has undertaken extensive research into the history of the Grade I listed house and its occupants. This provides the information for the new displays.
