The National Trust and the Public Catalogue Foundation have collaborated to produce catalogues of all oil paintings in National Trust houses across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The catalogue includes pictures and captions of around 1,500 paintings in National Trust properties situated in the North of England: the Lake District in Cumbria, Northumberland, Yorkshire, Cheshire, Lancashire and Merseyside. Excellent collections of paintings at Dunham Massey, Lyme Park and Nostell Priory as well as those located in more unusual places such as Quarry Bank Mill, Souter Lighthouse and Lindisfarne Castle are all brought to life.
Interesting collections of paintings from Speke Hall, the Vanbrugh designed Seaton Delaval Hall, the 19th-century Norman Shaw house at Cragside and Beatrix Potter’s home at Hilltop are also described. Paintings by masters as diverse as Breughel, Guercino, Van Dyck, Carracci, Canaletto and Frank Bramley 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!
