[Tailpiece to the Catalogue of Pictures exhibited in Spring Gardens, May 1761]
W. Hogarth inv.t et del. C. Grignion sculp.
Publish'd according to Act of Parliament May 7. 1761
Engraving, sheet 145 x 140mm (5¾ x 5½"). Trimmed inside platemark; slight staining.
Satire on connoisseurs. Tailpiece to an exhibition held by the 'Society of Artists' at Spring Gardens, Charing Cross, in 1761. This exhibition was organised as artists, including Hogarth, withdrew from exhibiting at a space lent by the Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce on the Strand. Hogarth designed the frontispiece and tailpiece for the catalogue, which together predict increased royal patronage of the arts and the end patronage from connoisseurs. Royal patronage is represented as a plentiful reservoir in the frontispiece, while in this tailpiece a connoisseur dressed as a monkey, holding a magnifying glass, waters three withered and sapless sticks (all labelled with their dates of death, centuries ago) to show the poverty of patronage from connoisseurs. The labelling of the dead trees as 'exoticks' only emphasises the disillusionment of those connoisseurs.
