1738 - In his engraving 'Noon' the artist William Hogarth depicts the Huguenots of Soho
<< Back


The Huguenots are leaving their chapel at the end of Sunday morning service. Their minister is in the background. He is marked out by the Geneva bands, a pair of white strips, that he wears at his neck. This is the badge of a Calvinist minister. His congregation are elegantly dressed and carry themselves with stiff formality.

The chapel in this picture is L'Eglise des Grecs in Hog Lane.
