Details

Compton Verney, a Grade-I listed mansion house in Warwickshire, UK, was re-designed by Robert Adam in the 1760s and is set in parkland landscaped by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Compton Verney was bought by Compton Verney House Trust with financial support from the Peter Moores Foundation in 1993, by which time the house and grounds had fallen into decay, and it was decided that the mansion would be transformed into an art gallery. Opened to the public in 2004, there are six permanent collections, highlighting areas that are under-represented in the UK. Paintings from Naples represent a cross-section of masterpieces from the 'Golden Age' of Neapolitan art from 1600 to 1800. German medieval art includes work by Cranach, Riemenschneider and Schongauer.Compton Verney also holds exemplary collections of Chinese bronzes, British Folk Art, British portraits and objects collected by twentieth-century textile designer Enid Marx with the historian Margaret Lambert. This attractive new guide presents highlights of Compton Verney's six collections, including the latest acquisitions.
