Morning visit to Dorich House Museum
Friday 19 October 2018


A local hidden gem, Dorich House Museum at Kingston University is the former studio home of the Russian sculptor Dora Gordine and her husband the Hon. Richard Hare. Designed by Dora Gordine, it was completed in 1936 and is an exceptional example of a modern studio house, designed by and for a female artist.  As well as a major collection of Dora’s paintings, drawings and sculpture, the Museum displays Richard Hare’s important Russian collection: icons, ceramics, glassware, folk art and furniture, dating from the early 18th century to the early 20th century. Located in Kingston Vale, overlooking Richmond Park, Dorich House is a short drive from Wimbledon and accessible by public transport.
