About the exhibition

In the late nineteenth century, a unique community of artists’ studio-houses grew up around Holland Park. Many of these artists rose to the height of their profession, acquiring celebrity status and creating remarkable studio-homes which reflected their commercial success.

Over the past two years Leighton House has expanded its collection of works by Holland Park Circle artists, acquiring paintings by James Jebusa Shannon, Colin Hunter and Albert Moore. These new acquisitions will be shown in our redeveloped gallery space within the historic house,  alongside works from the museum’s collection. These include photographs by Julia Margaret Cameron and recently restored paintings by Leighton’s neighbour and biographer, Emilie Barrington, to explore the diverse output of these artists and their place within the Victorian art world.
