From 1732 to the early 1980s St George's Hospital was located at Hyde Park Corner. This view of its prestigious buildings was commissioned from Edward Bawden to display in the Hospital's new premises at Tooting. It has hung in the main entrance at Tooting ever since. The painting technique is interesting, the white ground acts as a colour and the shapes of the buildings were blocked out with a palette knife. Then the architecture was ruled using a pencil and details of architraves and the capitals were drawn and painted on paper and stuck in place. The cars and some of the groups of people are also painted paper additions. In the foreground prominence has been given to C. S. Jagger's inspirational Royal Artillery Memorial.
