Plate I, Plate II.
Two fantastic prints depicting the Invasion of France and England. ” The Invasion” represents one of William Hogarth’s most didactic sets of engravings. Created at the beginning of the French and Indian War (also termed the Seven Year’s War) an invasion from France seemed probable. William Hogarth thus used this pair of engravings to boost public morale.
