Enthusiasm Delineated
Isaac Mills was commissioned by John Ireland to engrave a copy of Hogarth's original Enthusiasm Delineated. The work, a satire on the emphatic and emotionally-charged nature of Methodist preaching, was also intended to address recent discussion of the subject of 'enthusiasm' in art after a publication by Reynolds. Hogarth's plate was never published, perhaps owing to concerns amongst his friends in the clergy that the print might be seen by many as an attack on religion more generally. As a result, Hogarth dramatically reworked the plate and issued it instead as 'Credulity, Superstition, & Fanaticism: A Medley.' . It ridicules secular and religious credulity, and lampoons the exaggerated religious "enthusiasm" of the Methodist movement.

Analysis of Beauty Plate 1
   The Analysis of Beauty was a book written by William Hogarth (18th century English painter, satirist, and writer) and published in 1753, which describes Hogarth's theories of visual beauty and grace in a manner accessible to the common man of his day.This print depicts a statuary yard in which Hogarth has collected the various artifacts he wishes to comment on. The scene is believed to have been inpired by Socrates' discussion of beauty stimulated by the art objects in the yard of his friend Clito; the dialogue was translated from Xenophon's Memorabilia by Dr. Morell, a friend of the engraver. The yard contains the dignified classical sculptures known to the age with a miscellaneous and often comical assortment of modern art objects. In the center stands the Medicean Venus. To the right are statues of Julius Caesar hanging from a pulley and Apollo Belvedere. A short, overdressed Brutus stands on one side of Apollo over the falling Caesar; on the other side another overdressed figure clad as a judge sits with his foot on the head of a cherub. A second putto with a gallows in its hand cries at the judge's feet.The Laocoön stands behind the Venus; on either side of the Venus lie a graceful sphinx and the satyr Silenus reclining on a wineskin. In the foreground rests "Michaelangelo's torso" by "Apollonius, son of Nestor." Beneath the Farnese Hercules a dancing master attempts to correct the posture of Antinous. Under two statuettes of Isis is another Hercules. The boot and the anatomical sketches of the three legs are balanced by the highly symmetrical figures (by Albrecht Dürer and G. P. Lomazzo) on the right.
