Description
1 print :
This is the second building of Bethlem Hospital [Bedlam], built in 1675-1676 in Moorfields, London. In 1814-1815 the hospital removed to St. George's Fields, Southwark, and the Moorfields building was subsequently demolished This print shows the first state of Bethlem, as built in 1675-6, before the addition of the side pavilions. Cole has taken liberties with the gate statuary, showing a lion and unicorn couchant rather than the figures by Cibber of melancholy madness and raving madness
