Marriage A-la-Mode: 2. The Tête à Tête

Artist: William Hogarth

The Tête à Tête is the second canvas in the series of six satirical paintings known as Marriage A-la-Mode, painted by William Hogarth.

Persons

The painting is the sparsest in terms of characters present, with only 4:

  • The Viscount — seated, on the right
  • The Viscountess — seated, across from her husband
  • The Methodist servant – walking out
  • The other servant – in the other room

Plot

The exact details are not always settled upon (in particular, the time of the day is one of the most disputed questions in the entire series), but the primary implication is clear: The two are totally uninterested in each other, and the marriage and the household are rapidly becoming untenable.
