Picture: Museum Fine Arts, Boston/Art Newspaper

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (one of my favourite museums) has re-opened its prized mid-eighteenth century drawing room from Newland House. In pride of place in the picture above is a newly discovered portrait by Allan Ramsay, acquired from us here at Philip Mould & Co last year. More details in The Art Newspaper, and you can see a video of the room here

Update - a reader writes:

You may like to now that Newland House itself was burnt to a shell early last year and is about to be demolished.....

all very sad tho with luck nothing of aesthetic value in the remaining interiors.....
