Excerpt from A Descriptive Catalogue of the Collection of Pictures Belonging to the Earl of Northbrook: The Dutch, Flemish, and French Schools by Mr. W. H. James Weale; The Italian and Spanish Schools by Dr. Jean Paul Richter
The Collection of Pictures described in this Catalogue was, with very few exceptions, made by the late Mr. Thomas Baring, who bequeathed it to his nephew, Lord Northbrook.
Mr. Thomas Baring was the second son of Sir Thomas Baring, and brother of Francis Thornhill Baring, first Lord Northbrook. He had been brought up in familiarity with good pictures, for his grandfather, Sir Francis Baring, acquired a fine collection of Dutch masters at the end of the last century. On the death of Sir Francis in 1810 his son, Sir Thomas, parted with the Dutch collection to the Prince Regent, and formed a gallery mainly composed of Italian pictures.* Afterwards he added to it some works by English and Dutch masters.
