The Sleeping Congregation

Artist: William Hogarth (British, London 1697–1764 London)

A congregation dozes during a church service as the clergyman reads from the gospel and his clerk, sitting below the pulpit, eyes the exposed bosom of a young woman. The preacher was intended by Hogarth to satirize his contemporary John Theophilus Desaguliers. Originally published in October 1736, Hogarth here republished the print in 1762, adding elements such as two warts on the reader's face and cracks in the wall on which the angel is painted.


Print is in fair condition, small water damage as seen in pictures, but overall fair condition print comes with frame included, total dimensions are 45,5 x 35,5 cm (with frame)
