Frames at Compton Verney Gallery

I paid my first visit to Compton Verney Gallery in Warwickshire recently, after it was mentioned to me by Lynn Roberts who runs the wonderful Frame Blog. It is situated in a classic country house with several collections (such as Naples art, British portraits, and Northern European work), with examples of some good antique and reproduction antique frames, all set in a landscape by Capability Brown. There is also a room with plasterwork frames by Robert Adam.
