Description: Portrait and still-life painter Mark Gertler (1891-1939) lived and worked here between 1912 to 1915.

His early life and his relationship with Dora Carrington were the inspiration for Gilbert Cannan's novel Mendel.

The characters of Loerke in DH Lawrence's Women in Love, and Gombauld in Aldous Huxley's Crome Yellow were both also based on him.

Check out the pavement in front of this house for a cast-iron roundel created by sculptor Keith Bowler in 1995, depicting a detail from Gertler's Merry-Go-Round.

The house frontage was adorned with a blue plaque in 1975 by the Greater London Council Mark Gertler 1891-1939 Painter lived here.
