Paintings

The following list is based on the Public Catalogue Foundation’s Oil Paintings in Public Ownership in Essex (2006), pp 214-7, the only change being that the portrait of Bishop Brownrigg was previously thought to depict Archbishop Ussher. The portraits are mostly 17th-century copies of well-known paintings; the monarchs, painted on wooden panels, appear to have been cut down from larger works to a uniform height. Dimensions are given in centimetres (height before width; E = estimated, in the case of framed pictures).
