The Broadway Artist Colony

Learn about the Broadway Colony of artists and writers, including William Morris, Edwin Austin Abbey, Francis D Millet and John Singer Sargent, who lived or visited, worked and played in Broadway

With the arrival of steam technology and the development of the rail network in the mid-19th century, coach travel declined and Broadway’s prosperity collapsed as a result. But the traditional Cotswold stone buildings, the beautiful countryside, and the sense of peaceful isolation from an increasingly noisy world attracted artists and writers.

Enjoy our Exhibition about the Broadway Colony of artists and writers, including William Morris, Edwin Austin Abbey, Francis D Millet and John Singer Sargent, who lived or visited, worked and played in Broadway between 1870 and 1920.
