Lord Hervey and his friends

1738-39: The National Trust, Ickworth, Suffolk

John Hervey is standing with the key of the Vice Chamberlain to the Queen at his waist. A typically Hogarthian satirical note is introduced with the Reverend Peter Louis Wilman toppling off his chair in his eagerness to view through a telescope the village where he had been promised a living. The painting has all the delicacy associated with Hogarth's conversation pieces, as can be seen from the unusual detail of the basket of flowers. It was one of his latest essays in this genre and was painted about 1737.
