Oil painting on canvas, Kedleston Hall from the South by George Cuitt the elder (Moulton 1743 – Richmond, Yorks. 1818). Its pendant is Kedleston Hall from the north-west by George Cuitt, KED/P/34 (Scarsdale Collection). Landscape with a view of Kedleston Hall from the south. One of a pair of pictures of the new house, formerly attributed to Joseph Farington, but now – somewhat speculatively – to Cuitt, whose only attested activity is for his patrons, the Dundas family, and in his native Yorkshire and Wales. Distant view of Kedleston Hall right of centre. Small sailing boat on lake to right and group of deer lower right.
Gifted to the National Trust in 1986 by Francis Curzon, 3rd Viscount Scarsdale (1924-2000).
