Forsaken, 1879 (oil on canvas)

TW429343 Forsaken, 1879 (oil on canvas) by Dixon, Alfred (1842-1919); 127x100.4 cm; Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, Tyne & Wear, UK; ( Uniforms worn by the women in this scene show that they are in a workhouse or other home for women in need. On the walls hang a religious text and several lists, perhaps of the home's rules. The painting's title of Forsaken suggests that the young woman in the centre might have been abandoned by her baby's father, or disowned by her family. This may be a North East subject, as Alfred Dixon showed a number of North East scenes at the Royal Academy in London. He was a London artist;); A© Sunderland Museums ; British, out of copyright
