Given my British upbringing, I am, of course, familiar with William Hogarth and his work.

I do not consider him one of my iconic artists, but I do enjoy and appreciate his work — in all of its facets.

If, however, the truth be told, I know him MOST, and think of him, in terms of THE London roundabout. Over the years I have spent many lifetimes in and around that roundabout — stuck in London traffic. Aaahhh, the Hogarth Roundabout. What a landmark.

The stuff of legends IF you were lucky enough to have had a British upbringing (though Henry Morton Stanley was an American). {Smile}

The phrase itself is now fairly famous, probably from all the movies and TV shows.

So, 148-years ago. Pretty neat stuff.
