The Tête à Tête (1743) is the second canvas in the series of six satirical paintings known as Marriage à-la-mode painted by William Hogarth. The actors in this classical interior are the son of an impoverished earl, a rich merchant’s daughter and their butler.

Marriage à-la-mode (National Gallery, London), is a pointed skewering of upper class 18th century society. This moralistic warning shows the miserable tragedy of an ill-considered marriage for money. This is regarded by many as his finest project, certainly the best example of his sequential story cycles.
