Marriage A-La-Mode was a grand scheme devised by Hogarth, which commenced with his paintings of the six scenes, representing "a Variety of Modern Occurrences in High-Life". The paintings are now in the National Gallery in London. They were complete in 1743, and as early as that Hogarth was advertising the prints, to be engraved by the best masters in Paris. Although Hogarth was himself an engraver, he travelled to Paris in May 1743, partly to secure the services of the French engravers, including Louis Gerard Scotin (The Younger), who engraved this print. In this print, the last of the series, the fashionable marriage has ended very badly, with the husband having been hanged for murder and the wife having just taken poison, in the dingy apartment where they now live. For a commentary on the wealth of detail in this sorry scene, see Paulson, Hogarth's Graphic Works, 1989, pages 122-124 (Paulson 163). This print is from the 1835-1837 edition published by Baldwin Cradock & Joy. After this edition Hogarth's plates were dispersed and some badly altered, so this is the last edition to be reliably the artist's work Unframed, will be sent flat.
