PAIAM Members' Event - Christmas Reception at The Foundling Museum

The 2015 Christmas drinks were held at The Foundling Museum, Bloomsbury, on 25 November 2015. The Foundling Museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK's first children's charity and first public art gallery, which continues today as the children's charity Coram. The moving story of the Hospital and the children who grew up there is revealed through the artworks, objects and archival documents on display in the Museum.

 

Artists who donated work to the Foundling Hospital include William Hogarth, Thomas Gainsborough, Joshua Reynolds and John Michael Rysbrack. Paintings, sculpture, furniture and ceramicsare displayed in beautiful eighteenth-century interiors, reconstructed from the original Hospital building.
