The Guardian have published an article on news that the Frick Collection will be loaning their William Hogarth portrait of Mary Edwards of Kensington to an upcoming exhibition at the Tate Gallery in London. This is said to be the first time the painting has returned to London in a century.

The article quotes Assistant Curator Alice Insley:

She trod her own path and contravened the social mores of the time. Mary will be a highlight of the exhibition and it is the kind of loan from the Frick Collection in New York that only happens in exceptional circumstances. Luckily for us, there is building work at the gallery and so the painting cannot be displayed there.

The Tate's upcoming exhibition Hogarth and Europe, which will feature 60 works by the artist, will be opening on 3rd November 2021 and run until 20 March 2022.
