The London Foundling Hospital - Christie's Auction 9 March 2010 - London

It is very exciting to see a sampler of the Foundling Hospital of 1763 as interpreted in 1825 by 10 year old Sarah Ann Quartermain. Below is a bird's eye view of the Foundling Hospital painted about 1753 for comparison. I wonder if the brown hatted figures in the sampler grounds represent the girls who wore a distinctive brown uniform. The sale of this sampler will take place in London at Christie's on 9th March.
