Drawing at The Foundling Museum
10 minute sketch from a painting in the museum 10.2.06
"Feeling the pinch of poverty" by Thomas Kennington
The Foundling Museum tells the story of the Foundling Hospital, London's first home for abandoned children and of three major figures in British History: its campaigning founder the philanthropist Thomas Coram, the artist William Hogarth and the composer George Frideric Handel. It was also Britain's first public art gallery. I spent the day there today at a printmaking workshop.
There follows photos of the drawings I made based on the museum's exhibit, and the prints that were inspired by those drawings.
