Kenwood


1pt.gif (86 bytes)One of the treasures of London...and rightly so! It was not so much the gardens this time as it was the interior. As you can see by the picture it is huge and home to the finest collection of Old Master paintings given to the British nation in the 20th century. In this Georgian villa you will discover masterpieces by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals, Van Dyck, Gainsborough, Reynolds, Turner and more formed around 1890 by Edward Cecil Guinness, first Earl of Iveagh and chairman of Guinness brewery.
