His wark ranged frae realeestic portraitur tae comic strip-lik series o picturs cried "modren moral subjects". Knawledge o his wark is sae pervasive that satirical poleetical illustrations in this style are eften referred tae as "Hogarthian".
- Accordin tae Elizabeth Einberg, "by the time he died in October 1764 he had left so indelible a mark on the history of British painting that the term 'Hogarthian' remains instantly comprehensible even today as a valid description of a wry, satirical perception of the human condition."
