'Foundling Hospital' by Eyre Crowe A.R.A. (1894). Reproduction from Royal Academy Pictures, 1894, p. 78

Medium: oil

Size: 19 x 24 inches

Exhibited: Royal Academy, 1894

Some sketching at the Foundling Hospital in London had been undertaken by Crowe in 1889, but his serious work on this picture took place at the end of 1893 and the beginning of 1894, with many repaintings of the principal girl figure.

This painting was one of those remaining in Eyre Crowe’s possession at his death, and was sold for 12 shillings at an auction of his remaining works.
