The Foundling Museum From the series Planet Zog

The four series of pictures were all created within the last five years and include Blake’s Planet Zog series of 2007 for the Alexandra Avenue Health and Social Care Centre in


South Harrow in which alien creatures and young people playfully swap doctor and patient roles and Blake’s Moth


ers and


Underwater series of 2011 created for the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire in Angers, France where Blake has decorated the new maternity building with a series of fifty drawing of mothers and newborn babies swimming together underwater.

As Quentin Blake explains, “I think the very presence of pictures helps to make being in, or visiting a hospital a more normal, less alien experience. What I have tried to include is a certain amount of detail, some interesting activities, and some suggestions of the little drama of relationships, so that the viewers - especially any who have to wait - may feel the desire to go on looking and perhaps even to speculate about the stories happening in front of them.” The exhibition will be accompanied by a programme of events, including family activities, workshops and a reading corner decorated with Blake’s recent designs for wallpapers by Osborne & Little.
