Hogarth’s statue

The statue is the work of Jim Mathieson and was unveiled on 23 October 2001 by Ian Hislop, assisted by David Hockney,  patron of the statue appeal. The pug dog at Hogarth’s feet was unveiled last by a pupil from William Hogarth School.

Donations to support the scheme came from many private individuals but also from local businessesincluding Hogarth Health Club, the developers of Chiswick Park and Sainsbury’s Local. There were also two huge Hogarth birthday parties at Chiswick Town Hall, with food and drink and 18th century entertainments!
