Town & Country (UK) - - CONTRIBUTORS – WINTER 2018 -

On page 142, the Mar­chioness of Chol­monde­ley speaks fondly about the ex­pe­ri­ence of sit­ting for a por­trait by Phoebe Dick­in­son. The work will join pieces by Gains­bor­ough and Sar­gent in the his­toric art col­lec­tion at her home, Houghton Hall.

What do you love most about win­ter? ‘Watch­ing star­lings mur­mu­rate – they do it ev­ery year near us and it never fails to amaze me.’

How do you dec­o­rate your Christ­mas tree? ‘With the chil­dren, while car­ols blast in the back­ground – though I can’t help chang­ing it all once they have gone to bed.’

Your hopes for 2019 ‘Health and hap­pi­ness for my friends and fam­ily, and new ad­ven­tures.’
