Join 18th-century specialist Elizabeth Einberg for an evening tour of our exhibition Ladies of Quality & Distinction.

Elizabeth Einberg, senior research fellow at the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art and former curator at Tate Britain, explores the stories and paintings of the 11 ladies who galvanised Thomas Coram’s campaign to establish the Foundling Hospital in the 18th century. Discover the various ways in which the ladies presented themselves for posterity and why; and how they found opportunities to make their voices heard.
