Hogarth’s engraved portrait of the infamous Scottish rebel, Simon Fraser, 11th Lord Lovat was published after his arrest for treason in 1746. The drawing, once thought to have been Hogarth’s preliminary study, is more likely a copy made from the engraving.
Hogarth’s engravings were so popular that pirated editions often appeared soon after the original issue. Hogarth asked Parliament for copyright protection, leading to the "Hogarth Act" in 1734.
