London’s Blue Plaques at Sotheby’s Story Café

In partnership with English Heritage

In celebration of London’s role in the artistic journeys of so many, Sotheby’s Story Café and English Heritage pay tribute to the capital city which has long been a cultural melting-pot for artists from around the world who, in their own unique ways, have revealed with each touch of a paint brush, each written letter, each musical note, the impact of the dynamic environment in which they found themselves. The stories of such artists are the inspiration for London: An Artistic Crossroads who made London their home, as told through the iconic blue plaques scattered across the city. From Piet Mondrian to Jimi Hendrix, Johann Zoffany to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, English Heritage’s blue plaque scheme serve as markers for the remarkable individuals who lived and worked in these buildings – some humble and others grand – each plaque tells a story of innovation, creativity and influence and serves as a reminder of those who came from other places to flourish.
