May 2022 – A Private Guided Tour of the Foundling Museum

The Foundling Hospital was founded by Thomas Coram in 1739 to provide homes for children at risk of abandonment.   Many artists, including Hogarth, Gainsborough, Reynolds and Roubiliac, donated paintings and sculptures in order to support the hospital and it became the UK’s first public art gallery.

Our late morning visit will give us an insight into the history of the organisation and an opportunity to see the wonderful collection of works of art.
