Summary description

Oil painting on canvas, Tulips, Poppies, Roses and other Flowers in a Basket, and a Porcelain Bowl, French School, manner of Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer (1636-1699), circa 1700. Tulips, Poppies, and other flowers in a basket on a ledge, and roses and other flowers in a porcelain bowl on a Pedestal behind and above.


Unlike the other pictures at Grantham House, which appear to have been collected by the Sedgwicks (with the exception, obviously, of the portraits of General Sir Brian Wyldbore-Smith and his wife) these three pictures were most probably transferred by Anne Brownlow, Lady Cust (1694 - 1779), from Belton when she moved into Grantham House as her dower-house on the death of her husband in 1734, modernised it, and - no doubt - installed these as overdoors; given to the National Trust by the Misses Winifred and Marion Sedgwick in 1944-50
