Cadogan Square

It’s very rare that I ever visit Cadogan Square. In fact, I only ever remember occasional and faintly alarming visits to visit Denis Mahon, who lived in the most spectacular disorder with papers piled everywhere on the floor beyond the possibility of ever being tidied. But today I visited a private collection and was able to admire the ceramic columns at the north end:-

    Lovely detail, as always. Thank you.

    And good to remember Denis Mahon and his amazing collection of paintings for which he never paid any serious money – 250 pounds, max.
