Florence Nightingale par Claire FitzGerald


Bezeichnung

The British nurse Florence Nightingale played a key role in the development of humanitarian imagery, as the founder of modern nursing. During the Crimean War (1853–1856), she worked at Scutari Hospital, then located on the outskirts of Constantinople, where she famously lit her way with a lamp as she made her night-time rounds treating wounded soldiers. Women humanitarians since Nightingale are often represented as the redemptive healers of a suffering world.

Claire FitzGerald is co-curator of the exhibition WHO CARES? GENDER AND HUMANITARIAN ACTION (from 31 May to 9 October 2022).
