Patrick Neel, a Los Angeles artist curated a show of his own in 2008, involving the prints of William Hogarth, and then adding some work of his own as well. "Through drawings, prints and installations, Neel examines leadership, ideology, allegiance and how the way we memorialize our presidents influences our national identity. The show was inspired by Neel's fascination with English satirical cartoonist William Hogarth." Although Neel used Hogarth's prints as inspiration, he still hung them up under his name in his show. I'm suprised that there is no legal issue here, considering how famous the peices by Hogarth are.
