The book brings together the magnificent collections at Upton House, Kedleston Hall, Attingham Park and Hardwick Hall, as well as the Arts and Crafts and Pre-Raphaelite collections in the Trust’s first acquired house at Wightwick Manor, on the outskirts of Wolverhampton.
Paintings by Robert Peake, El Greco, Strozzi, Hogarth, Hackert, Watts, Burne-Jones and Ben Nicholson are all included.

2 stars Excellent catalogue shame about the service and packaging! Written by
This series of catalogues produced by the Public Catalogue Foundation is an excellent national resource and those produced by the NT are of great interest recording those paintings both on display along with those not seen by the public. The feel of the covers is extraordinary: almost rubbery in texture which makes them easy to hold. Unfortunately, the NT Shop doesn't seem to know how to pack items for dispatch and mine were damaged. I recommend the catalogues but also that you try somewhere else when purchasing!
