Room 29 showcase


A prominent figure in bohemian circles in Paris and London in the 1890s and 1900s, Conder has often been seen as the quintessence of fin de siècle decadence. Yet his original and varied artistic contribution was highly thought of during his lifetime and has been the subject of a revival in recent years.
