Who couldn’t love this place. It’s a place of fantasy. I know at least Patrick McGoohan and Jules Holland would have stood in the same spot.
Looking out the same windows as Théodore Rousseau and Jean-François Millet, leaders of the Barbizon school. Hoping some of their artistic energy will rub off onto me!
Home of Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, pioneers of early 20th century British art ‘the Bloomsbury set’. No photography was allowed inside, but this is the bedroom window that Vanessa Bell looked through every morning.
Heong Gallery, Cambridge
This is a fabulous picture window, Ai Wei Wei was the artist on show when I took this. Don’t think he went there though.
Yorkshire Sculpture Park
I love this place, mostly for the fact that it has a LOT of Barbra Hepworth sculptures.
Jim Ede, a curator at the Tate who built a personal collection from young artists of the time. This was his home. I fell in love with this place when I was 18.
M & S cafe, Cambridge
This branch is now closed, it used to be a cinema. So close to the Universities, I can’t imagine what great minds have looked through this window too!
One Great George St., London
Global headquarters of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), movie backdrop, place to sign treaties …
St John’s College, Cambridge
Any one of ten future Nobel Prize winners, seven prime ministers, twelve archbishops, two princes, three Saints, William Wordsworth, William Wilberforce …
Monet, that’s quite enough!
Monet’s bedroom window
Again – Monet, that’s quite enough!
Cromwell, Pepys, the odd ghostly nun maybe …
A retirement seaside town, whoever looked through this window had a long full life.
De La Warr
This is a place for art & artists, 1930‘s Modernism, still fresh.
La Douce Folly
My friends house – you can rent it, its a beautiful old French farmhouse in Haute-Pyreenes, not far from Lourdes, lovely!
