Pinch-of-Poverty.j thomas benjamin kenningtonpg

The Foundling Museum also owns, and has on display in the new exhibition, this painting: The Pinch of Poverty by Thomas Benjamin Kennington 1891. Although poor, this young mother has managed to keep her three young children with her.(Interesting that Thomas Kennington was Eric Kennington‘s father: we have one of his London Transport wartime posters hanging in the shop, it was in the window and has now been displaced by Charlotte Johnson Wahl.)
