Harewood has enjoyed a very special relationship with contemporary artists throughout its history.

JMW Turner came to Harewood as a young artist aged just 22 and left a legacy of majestic watercolours which remain in the collection today.

Other well-known artists historically associated with the House include watercolourists Thomas Girtin, John Varley and John Piper, and photographer Roger Fenton.

Today Harewood is home to an astounding collection of paintings by masters of the Italian Renaissance, family portraits by Reynolds, Hoppner and Lawrence, and modern art collected by the Earl and Countess.
