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. This catalogue includes pictures and captions of around 2,500 paintings from National Trust properties located in the West of England including the counties of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucester- shire. From superb collections such as those at Kingston Lacy, Saltram and Stourhead, the volume also includes paintings from more unusual buildings such as the 16-sided house of A la Ronde, Lutyens 20th-century Castle Drogo, Snowshill, and the Elizabethan mansion of Montacute. Paintings are also described from properties well known for their former residents such as Agatha Christie s home at Greenway in Devon and the D Oyly Carte musical family at Coleton Fishacre. Paintings by Gainsborough, Reynolds, Rubens, Titian, Tintoretto and Murillo, along with works by modern artists such as John Piper, are drawn from 60 properties.
