An essay on the theory of painting [by Richardson].

The last piece in the book is a carefully structured story in which a thirty-five- year- old narrator and an unnamed young girl go off for a weekend. Time accelerates as playing cards flap in a bike wheel’s spokes as it starts down the hill. A country weekend is a metaphor for a lifetime.

To date, scholars have therefore presumed the essay to have been a direct response to the theories promoted by Hogarth in his Analysis of Beauty (1753).The present study challenges this, with the examination of a less known book which appeared only four months before the Idler essay - Benjamin Ralph's The School of Raphael, or the Student's Guide to Expression in Historical Painting.

The essay interprets the eight-picture Rake's Progress series as an allusion to the life of Christ.

The author in desiring not to write a chronological life-story of Hogarth has chosen a series of thematic essays "each devoted to an aspect of the social and cultural history of the period".
