Freud's narcissistic bubble

Freud Museum London

In 1938, following the Nazi annexation, Freud and his family escaped Austria and moved to 20 Maresfield Gardens in Hampstead, London. It's the place where he continued to see his patients while finishing "An Outline of Psychoanalysis" and "Moses and Monotheism". Although he never liked Vienna very much and he always fantasized about living in London, he got to live here only for a year. He passed away on 23 September 1939.
This house belonged to the Freud family until 1982, when his daughter Anna died. For 44 years, she managed to keep her father's memory still alive and preserved his study in the exact way it was during his lifetime. One of the highlights is his study. The famous couch is here as well. The Freud Museum also keeps his large library along his impressive collection of antiquities containing 2000 pieces of Egyptian, Roman, Greek and Oriental figurines.
