Significant sale to the National Portrait Gallery

Lady Anne Clifford, Countess of Dorset by William Larkin

The Weiss Gallery is thrilled to have sold a long lost portrait of Lady Anne Clifford, Countess of Dorset by William Larkin to the National Portrait Gallery, London. Anne Clifford's tenacious battle to inherit her family’s vast estates in the 17th century, has made her a modern feminist icon. She commissioned the portrait from Larkin, one of the most fashionable artists of the Jacobean era, and mentioned it in her diary.

Embroidery Workshop

In partnership with Ornamental Embroidery, The Weiss Gallery is hosting a two-day course based on Elizabethan embroidered costume. The idea for this joint venture came about when Dr Lynn Hulse (textile historian) provided her expert opinion on an Elizabethan full-length portrait of Catherine Carey, Countess of Nottingham, painted by Robert Peake, c. 1597, sold by the gallery in 2012, and considered by many as the greatest costume piece of the period.
