The Fountain by Thomas Plunkett

The Fountain

Big Ben may be hidden behind scaffolding right now, but when it’s revealed in all its finery the view across the Thames from St Thomas’ must be one of the best on the river. This tranquil watercolour was painted by Thomas Plunkett, president of the Watercolour Society from 2012–17, whose works have been exhibited around the world.

River Front by Thomas Plunkett

River Front

The Victorian wards of the south wing at St Thomas’ were some of the first to be built using the ‘pavilion principle’ popularised by Florence Nightingale, who founded her school of nursing at the hospital – now the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care. The south wing is Grade II listed and in this view from the river, also painted by Thomas Plunkett, it’s easy to see why it has been judged to be of national importance in terms of architectural and historic interest.
