Petworth House in Sussex, England
I just returned from a wonderful trip to Petworth House in Sussex, home of the 3rd Lord Egremont, one of JMW Turner’s foremost patrons. Turner stayed and painted at Petworth House and there are 19 paintings by Turner, from early works to ravishing sunsets and wide vistas that are installed in the woodwork of the house. There are also beautiful paintings by van Dyck, Claude Lorrain, Titian and Bellotto and beautiful carvings by Grinling Gibbons. The House and its owner have a complicated history from the times of Elizabeth 1st and it is a thrill to see where Turner painted! It is a wonderful place to visit!
