Lot Essay

Hugh Andrew Johnstone Munro of Novar (1797-1864) was a Scottish landowner and great collector of both Old Masters and contemporary British artists. He was a friend, patron and executor of J.M.W. Turner and as a keen amateur painter himself he visited the Italian Alps with Turner in 1836. His collection was sold in these Rooms in a series of sales.
