About

The exhibition, Quentin Blake — As large as life, continues a tradition of great artists creating work for hospitals. This tradition began over two hundred years ago at the Foundling Hospital. Hanging alongside Quentin Blake's works are paintings by William Hogarth and his contemporaries who donated paintings and sculptures to the Foundling Hospital in the 1740s. Throughout his life William Hogarth associated with some of London's major hospitals as a Governor and artist. In On the Slab — The Medical Theatre of William Hogarth, Lars Tharp will look at this world through Hogarth's life and images. To book call 020 7841 3600 or drop into Museum Reception.
