Summary

Oil painting on panel, Sir Edward Hastings (1543/44-1603), aged 29, British (English) School, inscribed 'Ano DOMINI 1573 Aetatis Suae 29 Sir Edw Hastynges'. Portrait of a young man, half length turned slightly to the left, gazing at spectator; short light-brown hair, wearing a black doublet slashed with red, ruffled lace at the wrists, high collar from which emerges a small ruff, a book in his right hand, with inscription, at the top right an elaborate coat of arms and motto VERITAS VI SUA VICE (Truth [serves] instead of force) top right. This cannot be, as previously supposed, a portrait of Sir Edward Hastings, Baron Hastings, who died in the year that this is inscribed as having been painted, aged about sixty. If any faith can be placed in the later inscription at all, then this is presumably a portrait of the fourth of the six sons of Lord Hastings's elder brother, Francis Hastings, 2nd Earl of Huntingdon (?1514-1560), born in 1542, a few years after the eldest sons, Henry Hastings, 3rd Earl (1535-1595) and George Hastings the 4th Earl (c.1540-1604).

Provenance

From collection of Edith Maud Rawdon-Hastings, Countess of Loudoun (1833-1874), daughter of George Augustus Francis Rawdon-Hastings, 2nd Marquess of Hastings (1754-1826) and Barbara Yelverton, Baroness Grey (of Ruthin). She married Charles Frederick Abney-Hastings, 1st Baron Donington [she was the Hastings heir, in whose favour the abeyance of the numerous baronies was terminated, and sister of Henry Weysford Charles Plantagenet Rawdon-Hastings, 4th and last Marquess of Hastings (1842-1868)]; bought and bequeathed by Sir Percy Malcolm Stewart (1871-1951) to the National Trust and transferred to Montacute House, 1960 after the death of Lady Stewart
