This has been on my list of places to visit for many years, as I have lived in West London for decades. It took a friend from abroad to propel me to this beautiful gem of a house/museum.
The interior is exquisite, of particular note is the Moroccan Hallway with its gently trickling fountain and beautiful turquoise tiles. The centrepiece of the building of course is the artist's studio upstairs, where , with the help of carefully researched exhibits you can trace the genesis of many of his paintings. No starving artist in a French garrett, this,but a wealthy man with even wealthier patrons (Holland Family) It is apparent that his dedication to his art was total. I earwigged a tour that commenced whilst I was enjoying the studio, and the quality of the interpretation was brilliant, so I would highly recommend taking the guided tour. The garden is peaceful which is amazing since it is a stones throw from Kensington High Street. If you have a spare hour or two and you are in the area you will not be disappointed. Having visited once you revisit for a year for free!
