Covent Garden Futures c.1730–l875

If the splatter of decadence seems original at the ICA, take a look back at Creative Quarters, at the Museum of London – where Augustus Egg, painter of the Past and Present I, II and III series in Tate Britain, narrates the conflicts of morality and sexual transgression. This yearning for respectability by the artist in the face of decadence was of course prefigured by William Hogarth, whose narrative series ‘The Rake’s Progress’ is viewable at Sir John Soane’s Museum.

Creative Quarters at the Museum of London, EC2 through l5 July. Sir John Soane’s Museum, London WC2
