Tea Tables in Harlot's Progress
From Erik Fausak
Bethany Qualls, PhD candidate in English Literature takes us on a tour of engravings involving tea tables from the 18th British text by William Hogarth, "A Harlot's Progress". From rise to fall, the tea table follows her but represents different manifestations of her success and later failings.
