Oil painting on canvas, A Harlot's Progress: Quarrels with her Jewish Protector, after William Hogarth (London 1697 - London 1764). A copy of the second episode of A Harlot's Progress. Mary Hackabout provokes a quarrel with her Jewish protector and to distrcat his attention from th eesacpe of her lover by the door at the back of the room, kicks over a tea-table; her black page stands beside her at the right; her maid escorts her lover from the room. The series was engraved by Hogarth and published in 1732. The original oil paintings were sold by Hogarth to Alderman Beckford in 1745 and are all generally supposed to have perished in the Fonthill fire of 1755, although the fire-damaged original reappeared at auction in 1991.
