Rothenstein's home at 1 Pembroke Cottages, 1950

Pembroke Cottages are situated at the south end of Edwardes Square on the south side and were built in 1844. Originally there were four cottages but only two remain. The artist William Rothenstein moved here with his wife shortly after his return from studying in Paris. During this period he was mainly known for his portraiture, which was praised for his ability to capture his sitter's character. The cottage was later home to Lawrence Houseman, brother of the poet, who painted banners for the Suffragette movement in the back garden.
