In 1884, Millet was back in Europe where he hosted a small group of artists, including John Singer Sargent and Edwin Austin Abbey, who congregated in Broadway; an idyllic spot at the extreme south-eastern corner of Worcestershire, tucked into the foot of the Cotswolds overlooking the Vale of Evesham. Sargent’s painting Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose was painted in Broadway. In the late 1800’s Millet bought and salvaged the 14th century Abot’s Grange Mansion from disrepair and it subsequently became his studio for many years during his stay in Broadway. Many of his works were painted in the Great Hall at Abot’s Grange, including The Unconverted, as well as his most famous piece, Between Two Fires which currently hangs in the Tate Museum in London.
