Both a beautifully illustrated art history and a cultural biography, this book chronicles one of London's most influential artistic quarters. Tite Street, barely two blocks long, was a bohemian enclave from the 1870s to the 1930s, and home to a staggering amount of talent. From its studios and houses issued masterpieces like James Abbott McNeill Whistler's Harmony in Pink and Grey and John Singer Sargent's Lady Agnew, as well as Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. But Tite Street had a dark side; here Whistler was bankrupted, Frank Miles was sent to an asylum, Wilde was imprisoned, and Peter Warlock was gassed to death, as Devon Cox reveals in this kaleidoscopic portrait.
