Through its new exhibition the Foundling Museum explores the myth and reality of The Fallen Woman in Victorian Britain through paintings and popular media of the period. In an age when sexual innocence was highly valued and it was only deemed appropriate for women to have sex within marriage, the loss of chastity of an unwed woman had multiple repercussions. The figure of a 'fallen' woman has since been mythologised through contemporary art, journalism and literature, many of which will be brought together in this exhibition. Works by artists Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Richard Redgrave, George Frederic Watts and Thomas Faed will go on display.

 

About The Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum is one of London's real hidden treasures. Originally established in 1739 as a hospital which looked after abandoned children, the museum now tells their story. Using oral testimony, original artefacts and photographs, their history is explored and compared to the lives of contemporary children. More about The Foundling Museum
