dennis-severs-house-2-7632

In my quest to understand historic house museums, one of the most interesting endeavors I have come upon is the Dennis Severs Museum in London. A small house museum, only to be visited in the evenings, it was created by artist Dennis Severs to fool the eye. Severs choreographed ten rooms to illustrate an 18th century Huguenot family and how they lived. David Hockney proclaimed it a great opera. I must see it.
