- Just arrived! This little chap reaching for roses grew up to have an extraordinary exotic garden at Kew, which later became the site of @kewgardens - how apt! It is a portrait of Henry Capel, later Baron Capel of Tewkesbury (1638 - 1696), painted in 1640 when he was about one year old, by Cornelius Johnson (1593 - 1661). You can see Henry's whole family in a group portrait by Johnson @nationalportraitgallery. Incidentally, his dad - Arthur Capel (1604 - 1649), was an ardent royalist who lost his head on the block the same year as the King. Anyhow, the Capels were one of the the greatest gardening dynasties of the time, with stunning formal gardens at Little Hadham in Hertfordshire and Cassiobury in Kent. Johnson, meanwhile, was a prolific and successful artist, who before the arrival of Van Dyck in England, was employed as 'Serjeant Painter' by King Charles I. It really annoys me that there are no paintings by Johnson @royalacademyarts current show, 'Charles I, King and Collector'. Why? So here @weissgallery you can see how good an artist he was! #charlesikingandcollector #corneliusjohnson #capelfamily #kewgardens #oldmasterportraits #oldmasters #historicalportrait #1600s #17thcentury #kewgardens #historicgardens #roses #rosepainting #kew

- A fascinating cold walk around the gardens this afternoon , looking at some of the lost features and vistas and prioritising work with the head gardener Andrew Moss to try and bring some of these wonderful areas back to life including the entrance to the lakes , the original estate greenhouses and potting sheds and some of the fascinating features like the fire places built into the walls which would have been lit at the end of the fruit growing season to keep warmth in the double skinned walls and keep the frost off the trees 🌲 #lostgarden #historichouse #hha #estategardening #kitchengardens #englishcountryhouse #palladianarchitecture #georgiansociety #bygone #historicgardens #gardenersworld #constableburton #restoration #estatelife #wensleydale
