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.
