This book tells the story of the royal and family portraits collected by the Earls of Suffolk and Berkshire and gifted to the nation in 1974, which now hang in Kenwood House, Hampstead. Spanning four centuries, from Lely to Sargent, the study comprises essays reassessing the sitters' identities and costume and placing the artists in historical context; and a complete catalogue of the collection, with reproductions of the 59 paintings and a great many smaller reproductions of related works.
