26 editions published between 1971 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This illustrated book examines the whole of Hogarth's career, from his beginnings as a young and ambitious engraver in the 1720s, through to his rise to fame as a painter and printmaker in the 1730s and 1740s, and the crystallisation of his aesthetic theories in the treatise The Analysis of Beauty, published in 1753. Where most previous considerations of this prolific artist have concentrated on just a part of his multi-faceted career, here every aspect is included: his remarkable canvases, ranging from elegant conversation pieces to salacious brothel scenes and from early pictorial sequences such as A Rake's Progress to the Election series he produced in the last decade of his life; his vibrant drawings and sketches; and the numerous engraved works for which he is perhaps most famous, including Industry and Idleness, Gin Lane, Beer Street and The Four Stages of Cruelty." "In telling the complete story of Hogarth's life and work, the book offers a new understanding of the breadth of his achievements, demonstrating his brilliance as a graphic satirist, urban commentator, draughtsman, portraitist and history painter, and highlighting his exceptionally innovative role in creating a new art form, the satirical pictorial series. Published to accompany a major exhibition at Tate Britain, Hogarth provides the most comprehensive publication on this artist in print, revealing his unique contribution to the development of modern British art."--BOOK JACKET

The beautiful, novel, and strange : aesthetics and heterodoxy by Ronald Paulson ( Book )
9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Paulson retrieves an aesthetics that had strong support during the eighteenth century but has been obscured both by the more dominant academic discourse of Shaftesbury (and later Sir Joshua Reynolds) and by current trends in art and literary history. Arguing that the two traditions comprised not only painterly but also literary theory and practice, Paulson explores the innovations of Henry Fielding, John Cleland, Laurence Sterne, and Oliver Goldsmith, which followed and complemented the practice in the visual arts of Hogarth and his followers

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Don Quixote in England : the aesthetics of laughter by Ronald Paulson ( Book )
8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Seldom has a single book, much less a translation, so deeply affected English literature as did the translation of Cervantes' Don Quixote in 1612. The comic novel inspired drawings, plays, sermons, and other translations, making the name of the Knight of la Mancha as familiar as any folk character in English lore." "In this comprehensive study of the reception and conversion of Don Quixote in England, Ronald Paulson highlights the qualities of the novel that most attracted English imitators. The English Don Quixote was not the same knight who meandered through Spain or found a place in other translations throughout Europe. The English Don Quixote found employment in all sorts of specifically English ways, not excluding the political uses to which a Spanish fool could be turned."--BOOK JACKET
