National Trust - Castle Ward
Bernard Ward, 1st Viscount Bangor, and his wife Ann did not enjoy the most harmonious of marriages. So when they decided to build a new country house in the 1760s, it came as no surprise that they were unable to agree on a design.
When the 6th Viscount Bangor died in 1952, the house came into the ownership of the National Trust. Fifteen years later, the Trust acquired the Lievens painting from the 7th Viscount.
From this house you will see the following works in the Mauritshuis:
- Jan Lievens - An Unknown Woman in a Green Velvet Hood (c.1622-1632)
