Anne, Countess of Pembroke



    In March 2019, Abbot Hall takes part in the National Portrait Gallery’s Coming Home project which is loaning portraits of iconic individuals to places across the country that they are most closely associated with.

    This means Abbot Hall is able to show off the finest portrait of Lady Anne Clifford, which is in the National Portrait Gallery’s collection. Lady Anne Clifford (1590-1676) spent much of her life in a long and complex legal battle to obtain the rights of her inheritance. This portrait of her, by William Larkin, (c1618), is an excellent example of those commissioned by members of the Court of Charles I.
