Title: The Enraged Musician, an engraving.
Creator: Hogarth, William, 1697-1764.
Bibliographic Citation: Hogarth, William, 1697-1764. The enraged musician. November 30th, 1741. Etching and engraving.
Notes: The Enraged Musician demonstrates print’s interaction with theatrical and operatic performance. An Italian musician loses his focus due to the clamour on the streets outside. Hogarth depicts a scene in which print media proliferate: sheet music, ballads, and notably, a playbill advertising The Beggar’s Opera.
