Walter Savage Landor befriended the young Augustus Hare who would later build Holmhurst St Mary out of the proceeds of his travel books with William Morris wallpaper and an Italian stone terrace. Hare also loved Italy and this website gives his guide book to Florence with his engravings for it, also obtainable in the CD 'Florence in Sepia'.

WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR (1775-1864), an aristocrat, a Republican and a rebel, left England for Florence in 1821, and arrived with a full-fledged reputation as an artist: his poems and prose attest to his great classical learning and his epigrams are forceful and moving. He was a leader of the early English Romantic movement. Restless and eccentric, also extravagant and generous, he changed residence several times in Florence. He succeeded in amusing the Florentines with his wit (when he didn't terrify them). In 1835 he bequeathed his Villa Gherardesca home to his son, Arnold (1819-1871), who is also buried here, and returned to London, only to reappear in Florence in 1858. He was a fervent supporter of the Italian cause, to which the Brownings introduced him and he raised funds for the 'Garibaldini'. Finally, turned out by his family, like a mad King Lear, he found refuge for a while with the compassionate Isa Blagden , but finished his days in squalor, in lodgings arranged for him by Robert Browning, in Via della Chiesa, under the care of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's former maid, Elizabeth Wilson . He lived to a ripe old age, all but forgotten by the younger generation, but his name, as Swinburne wrote for his tombstone, is now forever united with that of Florence, his chosen home.
