DISCOVER THE MOLLIE LENTAIGNE COLLECTION

Mollie Lentaigne was a Medical Artist from Queen Victoria Hospital  in 1941-45

Mollie Lentaigne was a Red Cross voluntary aid detachment nurse at the Queen Victoria Hospital who had a great interest in art.

Archibald McIndoe soon recognised the speed and accuracy of her drawings and took her under his wing to produce drawings to record his surgical procedures. These were subsequently published in papers and books written by McIndoe.

The Museum is now the custodian of some 300 of her unique drawings. Please be aware that some of these images may be disturbing.
