The Analysis of Beauty is a book written by William Hogarth published in 1753, which describes Hogarth's theories of visual beauty and grace in a manner accessible to the common man of his day. Sold separately from the book, because of their comic and serious interests, the two plates were intended as independent collector's items to be appreciated in their own right and as illustrations to be bound into the Analysis.This is an unsigned 19th Century version from the original by Hogarth.
