Product description


Smith s well-illustrated book provides an excellent introduction to the family, house, and collections...and should stimulate further research --Thomas Tuohy, The British Art Journal

Longford is one of the finest houses in England...Since 1717, the Wiltshire castle has belonged to the Bouveries....They redecorated and remodelled the house in the 18th and 19th centuries, and established the magnificent art collection that is its principal glory...The theme is the story of the Bouveries as collectors, concentrating on their taste, patronage and acquisitions....it s good to have a history of the pictures and it is all beautifully designed' --John Martin Robinson, Country Life

Longford Castle is beautifully produced and well researched --Historic Gardens Review
