Felbrigg Hall

For generations the Windham family lived at Felbrigg Hall, close to the North Sea coast north of Norwich. The most important collector in the family was William Windham II during the eighteenthcentury. He was a keen sailor and especially liked seascapes – particularly those of the Elder and Younger Willem van de Velde.

Windham brought together a group of exceptional paintings, all of which he mounted in the same frame and hung at Felbrigg Hall.

The last occupant of Felbrigg Hall was a descendant – Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer. He died in 1969 and left the house to the National Trust.

From this house you will see the following works in the Mauritshuis:

  • Willem van de Velde I - The Battle of Texel (Kijkduin), 11/21 August 1673: The Engagement of the Two Fleets (c.1673)
