Hogarth began as an engraver and then learned to paint by working for Baroque muralist James Thornhill, whose daughter he married. His painting improved rapidly while his engraving was always superb. He had invented the 18th-century box set. Hogarth gleefully crammed plot into each funny, didactic and salutary painting, using various forms of visual shorthand including wry textual pointers such as bills and tracts and apposite paintings on walls.
