Hogarth etched Lovat’s portrait at an inn in St. Albans on his way to trial and eventual execution. Knowing what awaits him, Lovat is busy at work upon his memoirs. Hogarth has here created the almost archetypal portrait of a psychopath. Both his devious face and gestures show no trace of remorse.This is truly a masterpiece of character examination.

Copper engraving. Uncoloured. Good condition. Slight staining to the margins, more substantial to top and bottom on the left hand side but not affecting the image. Size: 24.3 x 37.4 cm. (9 x 14 inches)
