Apologies, here's a story which I missed two weeks ago.

The Lady Waterford Hall in Northumberland has received a donation of 40 paintings by the Victorian aristocratic artist Louisa Beresford, Marchioness of Waterford (1818-1891). The collection of works includes paintings, watercolours and sketches by the artist. It was amassed by Peter Stickley and Stewart Hamilton over the course of 50 years and has since been gifted to the Hall which contains Waterford's famous frescos.

A new exhibition of the collection will open over the weekend. Indeed, there's a ticketed opening being held on the 9th September, in case any readers might be in the area!
