National Trust - Ascott House
The seventeenth-century Ascott House had been a farm before the Rothschild family purchased it in the nineteenth century. They used the house as a hunting lodge and gave it its rustic exterior.
Since the English elite were prepared to pay good money for Cuyp’s landscapes, the master’s best works can now be found in British collections. The view of Dordrecht usually hangs in the dining room at Ascott House.
From this house you will see the following work in the Mauritshuis:
- Aelbert Cuyp - View of Dordrecht from the North (c.1655)
