Jim accumulated this impressive collection and "carefully positioned these artworks alongside furniture, glass, ceramics and natural objects with the aim of creating a harmonic whole." Eventually, students would be invited to the home for personal tours guided by Jim himself.
The house remains exactly how Jim and Helen have left it. One can find artworks in every room and every corner, to be enjoyed comfortably without the pressure of an inaccessible museum.
