Hogarth's original painting of the Bishop is N02734 above. An engraving after it (facing the same way as the painting) by Bernard Baron was published in July 1743 (Paulson 1970, no.226, pl.266) and led to the erroneous assumption that this was also the date of the original, which, however, is signed and dated 1741. some foxing.
