The restoration of the statue of William Hogarth in Chiswick to its former glory has begun. The works will be paid for by section 106 funding after lobbing by Chiswick Councillors. Situated in front of Barclay’s Bank on the High Road, the statue of Chiswick’s most famous former resident and “founder of English painting” was first unveiled in 2001 by Ian Hislop and David Hockney. Also present was local resident Peter Blake bringing arguably Britain’s two greatest living artists to honour one of the country’s all-time greats.
Since the unveiling members of the William Hogarth Trust have commemorated the artist’s birthday by placing flowers there each year.
