Notes Note in the accession file; 'painted between 1729 (building of Marble Hill - visible on Middlesex bank) and 1749 when engraving based on picture by Vivares published'. The official date of production given in the current catalogue, is 'c. 1750'. The bequest of the Hon. Mrs Nellie Ionides forms the foundation of the Orleans House collection; by the time of her death in 1962 she had amassed nearly 500 oil paintings, drawings, watercolours and prints, as well as an important collection of Oriental porcelain, bequeathed to the Victoria and Albert Museum. Perhaps even more importantly, she bequeathed Orleans House, acquired in 1926, to the Borough of Richmond, to house her collection. (NB The painting is currently on extended loan to Marble Hill House, Twickenham.)
