The Museum, which is the former home of the internationally acclaimed Estonian Sculptor Dora Gordine (1895-1991), holds the major collection of her bronzes, paintings and drawings, and a superb collection of Russian Imperial Art, gathered by her husband, the Hon. Richard Hare. The two studios, gallery and top floor apartment were all designed by Gordine herself in 1935/6.

Only heard of this place a few days ago, and decided to squeeze in a quick visit before they close during the winter months. So, so glad I did. Only one other visitor, who I met in the car park half an hour before they...More
