The former studio home of Russian sculptor Dora Gordine and one of London’s hidden gems, Dorich House Museum is located a ‘Deer’s Leap’ from Richmond Park in South West London.
Dorich House was the home of Dora Gordine and her husband the Hon Richard Hare, a scholar of Russian art and literature. Now Grade II listed, the building was completed in 1936 to Gordine’s design, and is an exceptional example of a modern studio house created by and for a female artist. Following Gordine’s death in 1991 the house was acquired and renovated by Kingston University and is now open to the public as a fully accredited museum. In the spirit of Gordine’s exemplary life and career, the Museum operates as an international centre to promote and support women creative practitioners.
