Description

Oil painting on canvas. Sir Philip Yorke, 1st Earl of Hardwicke, Lord Chancellor, PC, FRS, (1690-1764) by Thomas Hudson (Devonshire 1701 - Twickenham 1779), 1750. Mrs Bambridge was never able to acquire worthy portraits of the 1st or 2nd Earls of Hardwicke, so it was satisfying that the National Trust acquired both at auction in July 1998, with the aid of the NA-CF and Wimpole fund-raising. The 1st Earl who acquired Wimpole in 1740, and employed Flitcroft to transform it, was Lord Chancellor from 1737 to 1756. This portrait was given to his secretary, Hutton Perkins, and remained with descendants of his second daughter, Elizabeth, at Hollin Hall, Yorkshire, until the auction in 1998. CMS_PCF_207887
