The 'Fruits of the Spirit: Art from the Heart' trail is now live!

It's an online exhibition by the National Gallery, pairing nine paintings from its collection with nine works in other museums across the UK. Our 'fruit' is faithfulness. See how we've chosen to depict maternal faith by pairing The National Gallery's loan of 'The Finding of Moses' by Orazio Gentileschi with Soldi's portrait of Isabella, Duchess of Manchester by clicking the link below.

Over a period of seven weeks, artist Charlene Sandy and a group from Mind in Camden took inspiration from the museum’s collection of fabric and paper-based tokens to design the display, ‘The Fabric of Things.’ The group explored weaving, dyeing and creating natural inks to construct unique circles of paper, formed of fabric scraps and recycled materials.

Their work is available to see until the 11th December and is free with Museum admission, so have a look before the display finishes!

Today marks the start of Sugar Awareness Week. But where does the sugar in our food actually come from? And how did it come to the UK historically?

During the 18th-century semi-processed sugar was imported from the British colonies in America and the West Indies, where it was produced by enslaved Africans, and refined in Britain. The seizure and exploitation of territories and peoples across the globe provided opportunities for individuals to make their fortunes through trade, political roles and ownership of plantations. The wealth of many of the Foundling Hospital Governors had roots in Britain's colonial activities, including Thomas Emerson, shown here in this painting by Thomas Highmore (c.1731). Emerson, a partner in Fellowes, Houlditch and Emerson with several 'sugar houses' across London, left £12,000 (roughly £2m today) to the Foundling Hospital in his will.

Our exhibition Tiny Traces highlights a number of the Hospital's Governors and their links to Empire, deepening our understanding of the Foundling Hospital in relation to Britain's wider national story.

Today a new large-scale work of art by Shanti Panchal is unveiled at Brixton Underground Station. ‘Endurance’ is the sixth in a series of commissions at Brixton station, as part of Art on the Underground's programme to invite artists to respond to the diverse narratives of the local murals painted in the 1980s, the rapid development of the area, and the wider social and political history of mural making. Panchal's work is a reproduction of a large-scale watercolour in which he has painted a community portrait that observes its continued resilience and interdependence.

Visit our exhibition Tiny Traces to see another of Panchal's works, amongst pieces by other contemporary artists.

📸 Are you a keen photographer? Join art historian and broadcaster Jacky Klein in conversation with renowned artists Mahtab Hussain and Eileen Perrier on November 18. Exploring their commissions for our landmark Foundling Portraits Campaign, 'Making Visible' will unpack the making and meaning of these new portraits.

Today marks the end of a very special week - National Care Leavers' Week. We're looking back at our Tracing Our Tales programme, a training and mentorship programme for care-experienced young adults, with funding from The Baring Foundation. The programme trains participants to become assistants for artist-led workshops at the Museum, teaches critical life skills for future employment, and boosts participants' confidence helping them re-enter further education. This is some of the heartwarming feedback we've received:

‘Socialising with other care leavers is nice (weirdly it’s hard to meet other care leavers as an adult).’

‘Meeting the people I’ve met here has made me who I am.’

‘The environment is always so encouraging and encourages us to feel safe. You make us feel safe.’

We're immensely proud of everyone who has taken part, and can't wait to get stuck in with our current group!

For Black History Month we're sharing a couple of insights into the lives of the children featured in our exhibition, Tiny Traces.

F***y Kenyon is one of the children whose story is highlighted in the show. Fragments of information in the Foundling Hospital archives, via personal items, physical artefacts and archival documents, helped curator Hannah Dennett build a picture of the diversity of the Hospital in the 18th century. But who were these children? What were the circumstances surrounding their admission to the Hospital? Discover more about F***y's life, and the lives of other children of African and Asian descent, in our exhibition. Tiny Traces runs until 19 February 2023.

Discover the rituals and celebrations that brought neighbours together, such as the Dentdale Shout, the sharing of groaning cake, and the infant’s christening. The talk will also examines situations in which the community reacted to a birth with hostility and suspicion, and explores what this tells us about eighteenth-century notions of neighbourly duty and obligation.

To mark the upcoming anniversary of Charter Day (October 17) we are revealing our new double portrait of former Foundling Hospital pupils and best friends, Pamela McMurtry and Sylvia Copestake (Sybil Kingsford).

'Pamela and Nybs' by Eileen Perrier joins our Foundling Portraits Campaign, commemorating former pupils of the Foundling Hospital. Taken in the Museum's Court Room while Pamela was visiting from the United States, the portrait shows them side by side after over 60 years of friendship since first meeting at the hospital's Berkhamsted site.

Photographer Eileen Perrier’s dual Ghanaian and Dominican heritage informs her work through ideas around placement, cultural identity and diversity. Her portraits celebrate individuality within the framework of often coincidental common ground. Full of empathy, they probe into the ways we construct public and private identities, and how others construct them for us.
