Description

Leighton and Watts were the two artists at the heart of the “Holland Park Circle.” They were close friends and would often call on each other using a gate that connected their gardens. Watts's house contained four studios and a large gallery extension to display his work; these additions were designed by the architect George Aitchison. (The Studio-Houses of the "Holland Park Circle," produced by the Royal Borough of Kensington.)
