A poster and soundscape of Kew Gardens will go on tour of health centres in south-west London as part of an initiative between Paintings in Hospitals and Transport for London (TfL).

Paintings in Hospitals has been given five posters by the London Transport Museum as part of the museum’s access to art initiative.

Among the five works, which are representative of the golden age of poster design between 1920 and 1930, was a poetic depiction of Kew Gardens, which was brought to life by a soundscape, created by carers from Richmond Carers Centre.

A poster of boating on the river near Twickenham was also included.

The group worked with a sound engineer to capture some outdoor sounds in the gardens that were then edited and mixed with music reminiscent of the 1920s.

The five works will be available for loan in six months via the touring loan scheme, but are currently at Grafton Square surgery, near Clapham Common.

The Paintings in Hospitals loan collection has been created to provide comfort and relief to patients, visitors and staff to enable them to interact and cope better with their environment.
