William Hogarth is arguably the most recognized 18th century English print maker and painter known for his pictorial satire and social subject that range from the life of a prostitute to the follies of the wealthy. Hogarth created this suite of four engravings in March of 1738 entitled "Four Times of the Day" depicting London street scenes during the "Morning", "Noon", "Evening" and "Night". All four engravings are framed in matching vintage thing gold wood frames measuring 24 x 28 inches. These are from the 1822 James Heath Edition from the original plates and are in phenomenal condition from an impressive Central Florida private collection of fine prints. With all four prints having some very minor toning and spots of discoloration they are incredibly rich and  strong impressions. 

All four plates show outstanding detail and quality with paid attention to each subject and erroneous activity that is going on. Plate 1 "Morning" shows various activities of the people of Covenant Garden  on a winter morning at approximately 6:55 a.m. as seen on the clock on the right building Jones St. Paul's. Plate 2 "Noon" shows the congregation leaving the St. Giles in the Fields at 11:30 a.m. as seen on the the church spire. Plate 3 "Evening" depicts the entertainment of middle class with a family just leaving "Salers Well". In the center of the print a woman is milking a cow indicating that the rime of day is roughly around 5 p.m. The fourth and final plate "Night" shows a series of events including a couple moving their furniture trying to escape from their landlord at night, a barbers shop with the barber cutting his patient as he grabs his face in disbelief and even someone emptying their chamber pot from the upper left window onto the unsuspecting head of a gentleman walking by.
