On its inauguration at Cleveland House, the home of the Marquess of Stafford, in 1806, the Stafford Gallery housing his private collection was described as the ’Louvre of London’. Among nearly 300 paintings were works by the great Italian, French and Dutch Old Masters and English painters including the young Turner. With over 150 illustrations, this book traces the short history of the collection up to 1830 and its reincarnation in the Sutherland and Bridgewater galleries in the Victorian period.
