The Morgan Library and Museum in New York contains the largest collection of works by William Hogarth in America.  Hogath: Cruelty and Humour  explores the artist's inventive use of satire, and his role as an 'artist-activist' in eighteenth century Britain. Three drawings by the artist are on loan from the Royal Collection, including one of the four work series Four Stages of Cruelty and The South Sea Bubble, one of Hogarth's earliest 'modern moral subjects'.
