Herbert Percy Horne was an English Art Scholar who lived in Florence most of his life between the end of 1800 and the first years of 1900. His house in Florence in via de'Benci 6, near Santa Croce Square, became a museum afer his death. Through the years Horne built an incredible art collection, composed mostly by paintings and sculptures of the Florentine Middle Age and Renaissance, among them artists such as Giotto, Simone Martini, Masaccio, Filippino Lippi, Domenico Beccafumi, Giambologna. The Horne Museum is one of the biggest examples in Florence of the lively Florentine antiques market of those years, and above all of the love of the British community for Florence and its artistic heritage.
