EDITORS COMMENTS
Four Times of the Day, Night: A Scene of Chaos and Celebration on Oak Apple Day, 1738 by William Hogarth This print by the renowned English artist, William Hogarth, titled "Four Times of the Day, Night: A Scene of Chaos and Celebration on Oak Apple Day, 1738," depicts a lively and intriguing scene set in a narrow street leading to Charing Cross. The image is the night scene from Hogarth's series "Four Times of the Day," which captures the same location at different times throughout the day. The night scene is filled with excitement and mischief. In the foreground, a bonfire and a barrel have caused the Salisbury Flying Coach to overturn, creating a chaotic scene. The equestrian statue of King Charles I, standing tall at the far end of the street, bears witness to the commotion. The moonlit background reveals a moonlight flit of tenants, who are escaping their landlord, adding to the lively and historical atmosphere. The date, 29 May, is significant as it marks Oak Apple Day, a public holiday celebrated to commemorate the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660. The oak apple, a small gall found on the oak tree, was believed to have fallen from the tree under which King Charles II hid after his defeat at the Battle of Worcester in 1651. The tradition of celebrating Oak Apple Day involved the monarch wearing an oak leaf and apple in his hat, and the people of London would parade through the streets, often with bonfires and revelry. The central historical scene is further enhanced by the various details, such as the dentist's chamber sign, the chamber pot hanging outside a window, the lamp-lit pub, and the inn sign. This print is a testament to Hogarth's mastery of storytelling through art and his ability to capture the essence of historical events and everyday life in 18th-century London.
