A small fun piece of detective work this, the Country Houses of the UK and Ireland Facebook Group have posted the following photograph of an interior. Unfortunately, both the room and painting are unidentified and an academic is trying to track down the identity of both. If you happen to recognise the room or picture, do get in touch via. my email address above.

Update - The knowledge of the readers of AHN has prevailed once again! Mattia Biffis has been in touch to explain the painting seems to be Giuliano Bugiardini's portrait of Leonardo de' Ginori, c. 1528 held at the NGA in Washington D.C. Curiously, the provenance starts at the turn of the century, suggestion perhaps that this photograph is evidence of a previous unknown ownership (?)
