Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough: The Treasures of Kenwood House Julius Bryant, Susan Jenkins and Walter Liedtke


This catalogue illustrates an important group of works from the Iveagh Bequest, a magnificent painting collection that resides at Kenwood House, a neoclassical villa in London. Donated to the nation by Edward Cecil Guinness, 1st Earl of Iveagh and heir to the world’s most successful brewery, the collection was shaped by the tastes of the Belle Epoque—Europe’s equivalent to America’s Gilded Age—and reveal the earl’s taste for the portraiture, landscape, and 17th-century Dutch and Flemish works.

Included are Thomas Gainsborough’s Mary, Countess Howe (c. 1764), Frans Hals’s Pieter van den Broecke (1633), Rembrandt's sublime Portrait of the Artist (c. 1665), Joshua Reynold’s Lady Louisa Manners (1779), and Anthony van Dyck’s Princess Henrietta of Lorraine Attended by a Page (1634).
