Description

Jef Page, President of Ilford Historical society will be talking about William Hogarth’s painting The Assembly at Wanstead House. In 1728 Sir Richard Child- Lord Castlemaine and his wife Dorothy, invited their family and friends around for a china tea and card party at their grand palace, Wanstead House, to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. Child, one of the richest men in England, wanted to record the scene so he employed rising young artist William Hogarth to portray the event. Come along and find out about this fascinating painting.
