Image of View from the Artist - no.17


Apologies for the lack of posts lately - I have been away on various missions. One was filming for series 4 of 'Fake or Fortune?'. Another was dealing with a (what I thought was) particularly nasty legal letter. But fear not, AHNers, I remain undaunted.

I hope to be back to the blog later today. But in the meantime, here's another 'View from...' Can you guess the location and artist?

No Google image cheating this time!

Update - it is Wollaton Hall by Jan Siberechts (Yale Center for British Art). Well done to those who got it right.

Update II - there are two versions of the painting: one at Yale, above, and also a variant without the large sky, which you can see hanging in the house in the old photo below.
