A Poor-House: 19th century

Full image caption

A Poor-House. This painting was probably inspired by Doré's visits to the East End in 1869–70 to gather material for London: A Pilgrimage. The scene shows a gathering of the poor in a common lodging house or night refuge. Doré was sometimes accused of 'inventing rather than recording', but this wretched interior echoes contemporary engravings of London's lowliest lodging houses and their long-suffering clientele.
