St Bartholomew\\\\’s Hospital has existed on the same site since its founding in the 12th century, surviving both the Great Fire of London and the Blitz. St. Bart’s is the oldest hospital in Britain still providing medical services which occupies the site it was originally built on, and has an important current role as well as a long history and architecturally important buildings. The so-named Henry VIII entrance to the hospital continues to be the main public entrance; and the statue of King Henry VIII above the gate is the only remaining statue of him in London.
Between 1887 and 1915 Henry Tidmarsh exhibited 15 times at the Royal Academy as well as with the Royal Society of British Artists at the Suffolk Street Gallery, and the New Watercolour Society.
