An Artist’s Work
This house in London evolved over 30 years. Its purpose was to be a home, a studio and a manifestation of its famous occupant’s celebrated artistry.
A prominent painter in the 19th century, their first major work – Cimabue’s Celebrated Madonna – was bought by Queen Victoria at the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition. Around the house you’ll find evidence of the Victorian fascination with exotic shores – an example being the incredible Arab Hall with its golden dome, beautiful tiles and even a fountain.
