The Street of Wonderful Possibilities: Whistler, Wilde and Sargent in Tite Street

Devon Cox

For Wilde, the street was full of ‘ wonderful possibilities’, while for Whistler it was ‘the birthplace of art’, where a new brand of aestheticism was nurtured in his controversial White House. Modern masterpieces flowed from the studios and houses of Tite Street, but this bohemian enclave had a darker side. Here Whistler was bankrupted, Frank Miles was sent to an asylum, Wilde was imprisoned, and Peter Warlock was gassed to death.
