Footnotes

  • Provenance: By family repute the property of Maud Russell of Mottisfont Abbey, Hampshire and thence by descent to the present owner.

    Mottisfont Abbey was founded in 1201 and became the property of Sir William Sandys after the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 1530s. Maud and Gilbert Russell bought the property in 1934 and as patrons of the arts made it the centre of a fashionable artistic and political circle, playing host to writers such as Ian Fleming, and artists like Rex Whistler and Derek Hill. Mottisfont is now owned by the National Trust.
