Caption: Wilde at Night, 1997 by Maggi Hambling. Hambling’s fascination with the great nineteenth century poet and writer Oscar Wilde led her to make a number of paintings and sculptures in the late 1990s, including a controversial memorial to Wilde sited behind St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London. A gift to the Foundation.
