The Genius Of British Art 2/6: Art For The People

7:00pm Sunday, October 10 on C4

The history of British art is the story of Britain. For centuries, artists have reflected our times and shaped the way we see ourselves. This series presents six passionate polemics on how British art made us who we are today and how it continues to give us a vision of ourselves. In episode two Dr Gus Casely-Hayford shows how our sense of identity was changed forever by the most distinctively British artist this country has ever produced: William Hogarth.
