The Drawing Room

This room has been furnished in the same period style as the Library. Some surviving paintings from the original Ormonde collection are also hanging here. On the west wall is The Five Eldest Children of Charles I, dating from the seventeenth century, by an unknown artist after the original by the Flemish painter, Sir Anthony van Dyck (1599-1641). Among other paintings in this room are an interesting subject picture An Allegory of Avarice, signed by the Flemish painter Jan de Herdt (fl.1646-72) and several eighteenth-century Italianate landscapes. Over the fireplace are two nineteenth-century Scottish landscapes painted by a member of the Nasmyth family of Edinburgh.
