Summary

Engraving shows the interior of a room, where Hogarth, "no.1", leans against a table while holding an artist's pallette and a Pantin, or child's scaramouch. Around Hogarth are arrayed, no. 2, "his Genius", no. 3, "an Admirer", no. 4 "the Fool of Arts", no. 5 "a House of Cards", and no. 6 "the Imposter knock'd down by a French burlelque." To the side, a satyr holds a sheet upon which there is writing. The title refers to Alexander Pope's satiric epic poem, The Dunciad.
