The Folly of Taste.
William Hogarth. The Man of Taste. At the top of Burlington Gate the statue of architect William Kent, admired by Raphael and Michelangelo at his feet. On a scaffold below Alexander Pope white-washing the gate and in his enthusiasm splashes both passers-by and the coach of the Duke of Chandos.
