Manufacturer Description

In 1779 the family of Sir Robert Walpole, who lived at Houghton Hall in Norfolk, sold his magnificent art collection to Catherine the Great. In 2013 these masterpieces, rarely seen outside Russia, returned to Houghton for a brief exhibition. This sumptuous catalogue uncovers the wonders of Walpole's collection, including pieces by Raphael, Michelangelo, Van Dyck and Rembrandt, and reveals the splendour of the interiors that William Kent designed for them. With a foreword by the Prince of Wales, the exhibition's patron.
