Four marvellous painting of author and art critic Douglas Sladen’s #32 Addison Manions flat from 1915 painted by the Japanese artist resident in London Yoshio Markino. Sladen was a champion of Markino’s work and a keen lover of Japanois in the late 19th and ewarly 20th centuries. Sadly the building is gone, but Markino’s paintings remain…Addison Mansions comprised two blocks of apartments on Blythe Road, Hammersmith, opposite the Olympia Exhbition Centre built around 1888.
