The street was born in the middle of the 16th century and always was a street where artists, especially Flemish and Dutch, lived. Here at No.53 Thomas Lawrence, a portrait painter, founded the British Academy of Arts in 1821. It is still a street of artists with art galleries and studios, and in spring and autumn a street fair is held with paintings for sale.
