John Graham Campbell


Five paintings by Hondecoeter

In 1872, there was an assignment of the interest in an insurance policy for five paintings by Melchior de Hondecoeter then in London by the administrator of the estate of John Graham Campbell to Lord Brownlow. These paintings have not been identified but the records for Belton House show the accession of paintings by Hondecoeter in 1873.
