LORD and Lady Derby are to share their favourite paintings with the people of Merseyside as Knowsley Hall gets ready to open its doors.

As part of this year’s public opening in August, The People Behind The Portraitswill bring together paintings from the Derby’s personal art collection, which up until now have remained housed in their private residences.

Works by world-renowned artists including Sir Godfrey Kneller, a leading portrait painter in England during the late 17th and early 18th centuries and William Hogarth, an 18th century printmaker and pictorial satirist, will be exhibited for the first time.

Emma Tate is curator of The Derby Collection, she said:- “The Hall has been the ancestral home of the Stanley family since 1385 and over the years the Earls of Derby have amassed a stunning portrait collection.  The exhibition will display work dating as far back as the early 17th century and feature famous historical faces including King Charles I, the poet John Dryden, as well as several members of the Stanley family themselves.”

Lord Derby said:- “We are extremely proud of our art collection and felt that this exhibition was a fitting tribute to the city in its year as European Capital of Culture. 

We have derived much pleasure from the Derby Collection over the years and are sure that visitors to the Hall will be equally impressed and inspired by these magnificent pictures.”

The People Behind The Portraits takes place as part of the Hall’s public opening from the 14 August 2008 to the 20 August 2008.
