Sargent's Studio - Part II

One of my readers, and the author of one of my favorite blogs, Brilliant Asylum, saw my post last week on John Singer Sargent's studio. As she was reading the new copy of W magazine, she admired the window in a beautiful London flat featured in an article, and recognized that it was the same window that she had seen in my post about Sargent's studio. According to the W article, Sargent's former studio on Tite Street has been converted into a modern residence, but the owners retained the footprint of that grand, North facing window.

Sargent's studio on Tite Street, 2007. It was purchased by Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, and is now a residence.

What a lovely coincidence. I had been planning on a John Singer Sargent post for a while, and just got around to it last week. I was not aware of the W magazine article, but I am so thrilled to see a current picure of this wonderful and historical piece of London property! Please check out BA's post, and the W magazine article. I love it when things come together like this! Thanks, BA, for connecting the dots. You made my day!
