Hogarth Statue Attacked Yet again
Hogarth empty handed
William Hogarth Statue has suffered more than its fair share
of vandalism in its short term of residence. Sadly, there has
been a fourth attack in which another brush, this time from
his left hand, has been stolen with an estimated replacement
cost of £800.
thanks to Barclay’s CCTV camera, the senseless louts responsible
for this vandalism could be caught. Chiswick Police are interested
in footage filmed in the five days preceeding January 27th.
Brendon of The William Hogarth Trust informed us that the matter
is with the Council who in turn will be contacting the insurers.
spite of these latest events, this week did see the replacement
of William Hogarth’s Brush in his right hand – we all hope it
will remain here where it belongs.
anyone has any information that could help please contact Chiswick
Police or Hugh Brendon at The William Hogarth Trust on 020 8995
