The Original Bridgerton
A closer look into William Hogarth's Masterpiece series: Marriage A-La-Mode
Have you, like the rest of the world be fascinated by Bridgerton? Well, this series of Paintings are for you!
Join me on the Jo's Art History Podcast as I take you on an in-depth tour of the first ever depiction of a Bridgerton style marriage drama series in the form of William Hogarth’s Marriage A-la-Mode.
This six part series has it all!!
Love, loss, money and betrayal!
It’s very messy with a very serious warning - when you marry for
anything other than love,
no good can come of it.
Let me introduce you to Hogarth’s characters of Earl Squander-field, the slippery
Silver-tongue lawyer and the beautiful, yet not so innocent, Countess Squander-field!
So, who is the innocent party?
Are these two victims of their father’s plans?
Or does this series stand as a warning to all who marry for money and not love?
