The Road to Ruin

Prodigal Sons in the AGO Collection

August 21-November 14, 1999

The Road to Ruin

The paths of "Wayward Youth" are traced in British prints of the 18th and 19th centuries. William Hogarth's engravings "A Rake's Progress" are compared and contrasted to the Victorian prints they inspired. J.J.Tissot's "Prodigal Son in Modern Life" series and "The Road to Ruin" set after William P. Frith are included.
