Punch,  54 (1868), 164.

Pictures in the Right Place





Hospitals, Medical Treatment, Representation

    Praises the work of John Absolon, an artist who, 'without money-payment has given three months of well-occupied time to the painting of ten pictures in distemper, for the decoration of one of the sick wards of Guy's Hospital'. Holds that the pictures, which represent 'scenes of pleasant, bright, outdoor life', will successfully illuminate an otherwise dreary hospital ward.
