Conservative governments always seem to result in more homelessness. Funny coincidence, that. And what a shame the Labour Party can’t get into power and do something about it.
Even in Bethlehem 2000 years ago people offered space in a stable to the desperate. When William Hogarth portrayed rough sleepers in 1736, he was recording the reality of his time. Does it also have to be the reality of ours?
— Jonathan Jones
Centuries after William Hogarth created probably the first image of homelessness in British art in 1736’s Four Times of the Day, the image of people sleeping rough is one that is still all too depressingly familiar.
