Brexit: Hogarth Over Turner

Bendor Grosvenor writes: ‘Brexit changes everything: our politics, economics, even our national psyche. In art historical terms, we have chosen the way of Hogarth over Turner. And, yes, our art will probably be different, too—or at least the way we organise it, display it and, of course, sell it. Primarily…it all comes down to money. It seems reasonable to assume, given the precipitous falls in the pound and world stock markets, that a period of economic uncertainty or contraction lies ahead.’ Pictured is Hogarth‘s “O the Roast Beef of Old England” (1748)
