Tite Street in Chelsea, London, has been home to many famous figures from the art and literary worlds, including celebrated author and playwright Oscar Wilde, and painters Frank Miles, James McNeill Whistler and John Singer Sargent.

Wilde lived at 16 Tite Street in 1885 as his family residence. Shortly before Wilde purchased his permanent residence on Tite Street, he shared number one with artist Frank Miles, who was famous for his painting of a young Princess Victoria, as well as being a key suspect in the Jack the Ripper case.

The American artist James McNeill Whistler built his famous modern home and studio, the ‘White House’, on the street in 1877. And the Florence-born American artist, John Singer Sargent, lived at number 31 in 1900.
