Moll is now dying of syphilis.

Richard Rock on the left black hair and Dr. Jean Misaubin on the right white hair argue over their medical methods, which appear to be a choice of bleeding Rock and cupping Misaubin. A woman, possibly Moll's bawd and possibly the landlady, rifles Moll's possessions for what she wishes to take away. Meanwhile, Moll's maid tries to stop the looting and arguing. Moll's son sits by the fire, possibly addled by his mother's venereal disease. He is picking lice or fleas out of his hair. The only hint as to the apartment's owner is a Passover cake used as a fly-trap, implying that her former keeper is paying for her in her last days and ironically indicating that Moll will, unlike the Israelites, not be spared.

A Scene from ‘The Beggar’s Opera’ VI

Several opiates "anodynes" and "cures" litter the floor. Moll's clothes seem to reach down for her as if they were ghosts drawing her to the afterlife. In the final plate, Moll is dead, and all of the scavengers are present at her wake. A note on the coffin lid shows that she died aged 23 on 2 September The parson spills his brandy as he has his hand up the skirt of the girl next to him, and she appears pleased. A woman who has placed drinks on Moll's coffin looks on in disapproval. Moll's son plays ignorantly. Moll's son is innocent, but he sits playing with his top underneath his mother's body, unable to understand and figuratively fated to death himself.

Moll's madam drunkenly mourns on the right with a ghastly grinning jug of "Nants" brandy. She is the only one who is upset at the treatment of the dead girl, whose coffin is being used as a tavern bar. A "mourning" girl another prostitute steals the undertaker's handkerchief. Another prostitute shows her injured finger to her fellow whore, while a woman adjusts her appearance in a mirror in the background, even though she shows a syphilitic sore on her forehead.

The house holding the coffin has an ironic coat of arms on the wall displaying a chevron with three spigots , reminiscent of the "spill" of the parson, the flowing alcohol, and the expiration of Moll. The white hat hanging on the wall by the coat of arms is the one Moll wore in the first plate, referring back to the beginning of her end.

Moll is now the mistress of a wealthy Jewish merchant, as is confirmed by the Old Testament paintings in the background which have been considered to be prophetic of how the merchant will treat Moll in between this plate and the third plate.

She has numerous affectations of dress and accompaniment, as she keeps a West Indian serving boy and a monkey. The boy and the young female servant, as well as the monkey, may be provided by the businessman. The presence of the servant, the monkey and the mahogany table of tea things all suggest a colonial source for the merchant's wealth.

She pushes over a table to distract the merchant's attention as a second lover tiptoes out. Moll has gone from kept woman to common prostitute. Paulson wishes to differentiate those things Hogarth believed he was doing from those which, as part of the cultural milieu of the 18th Century, he was unconscious. From this study, Hogarth emerges as a more complex individual than that of the elitist Augustan satirist or the subversive popular artist.

After Hogarth Hogarth II by Paula Rego on artnet

Volume I charts the emergence of Hogarth the man, as well as being the story behind the creation of A Harlot's Progress. It also focuses on Hogarth's importance to the literary tradition as reflected in the writers who influenced him as a youth: the "Augustans" Butler, Dryden, Swift, Pope and Gay. Placing Hogarth in the context of the art of his times, Paulson examines the work of Thornhill, Kneller, Kent and the Burlingtonians, together with the aesthetics of Shaftesbury. Volume II: High Art and Low, The second volume in Paulson's definitive study of William Hogarth explores the peak of the artist's career, from A Harlot's Progress to The March of Finchley , and concentrates particularly on the production and consumption of his works.

It plays out Hogarth's conflicting aims of producing a polite or popular art, for patrons or for the general public.

  5. It is also concerned with the central issue of Hogarth as painter and engraver. Hogarth recognised that the art market was changing. Personal patronage was declining, art works were being commercialised, and a huge new market was opeing up. From his earliest professional training Hogarth had witnessed and participated in the employment of mechanical reproduction - printing and engraving - to create and extend cultural markets.

    The enterprising Hogarth set out to develop a new product corresponding to the expanding audience, especially appealing to those who wanted to maintain their own identity and not merely to emulate the upper class. Prints could now be seen in coffee houses and shop windows, therefore reaching an audience far beyond their owners. Art was no longer limited to the simple status of personal possession - this put in question the whole matter of property as it did of class.

    Hogarth's interests extended straight down from the dukes and princesses of his conversation pictures to the lowest denizens of the London underworld. Although he makes clear in his graphic works that his sympathies lay with the "nobodies", at the same time his pictures, with their learned allusions and visual and verbal puns, also address themselves to an educated audience.

    He was at once both inside and outside the system. Without Hogarth's graphic experiments of the s, Richardson and Fielding would have written very differently. Volume III: Art and Politics, This final volume of Paulson's magnificent biography takes Hogarth from his fifty-third year to his death at sixty-seven.
