HENI Talks with Director Caro Howell

HENI Talks with Director Caro Howell

Recently launched, HENI Talks is an initiative that is dedicated to sharing insights about art history from leading artists, curators and academics on film. To mark their opening, HENI Talks spoke to some of the key figures in the art world, including the Foundling Museum’s Director, Caro Howell. This talk explores how artist William Hogarth’s portrait of Thomas Coram, and their subsequent collaboration, helped to save children’s lives and laid the seedbed for the contemporary art scene as we know it, as well as the significance of art in the Foundling Hospital’s story.
