The French Hospital in England by Tessa Murdoch & Randolph Vigne

The French Hospital in England

Discover the story of The French Hospital, founded to support poor Huguenot refugees in 1718 and still in existence today. It’s an extraordinary story of resilience and reinvention as it moved from Old Street, Finsbury to Victoria Park, Hackney in the 19th century to Rochester High Street, after a brief interlude in rural Sussex. Written by two experts in the fields of Huguenot history, art and decorative art, the book is copiously illustrated with images of objects from The French Hospital’s collection, many of which are now on display at the Huguenot Museum.
