EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the interior of St Lukes Hospital in Old Street, London, during the early 19th century. Painted by renowned artist Thomas Rowlandson and architect George Dance Jr. , this image showcases a day gallery within the hospital where female patients resided. St Lukes Hospital was a significant lunatic asylum designed to provide care for those suffering from mental illness. The architectural brilliance of George Dance Jr. is evident in each patient's individual room, emphasizing their privacy and comfort. The concept of insanity is explored through this artwork, shedding light on the prevailing attitudes towards mental health during that era. The vibrant colors used in this aquatint print bring life to an otherwise somber subject matter. As we observe these women within the gallery, we are reminded of their struggles with mental illness and their journey towards recovery. This image serves as a testament to the advancements made in understanding and treating such conditions throughout history. Through its depiction of St Lukes Hospital, this print offers us a glimpse into Georgian England's approach to mental health care. It stands as a reminder that even centuries ago, efforts were being made to address and support individuals facing mental illnesses. Augustus Charles Pugin's collaboration with George Dance Jr. and Thomas Rowlandson has resulted in an extraordinary piece that not only showcases historical architecture but also highlights society's evolving understanding of mental health issues during the Regency period in Britain.
