Last year we witnessed the Fitzrovia Noir project which had rescued remnants and relics from the closed Middlesex Hospital in an artistic attempt to preserve the memories of its people and patients. Now Wellcome Library is also a party to the past of this historic institution through the acquisition of four massive, beautiful paintings, known as "The Acts of Mercy", by Frederick Cayley Robinson. Formerly they adorned the impressive entrance to the hospital. Now they fortuitously fit perfectly into the main entrance to the library on the 2nd floor of the Wellcome Collection building on Euston Road as if they'd always been destined to hang there. Wellcome Library is open to the public - register and go see for yourself.
