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.
