Harewood House is one of the greatest country houses in Britain. Situated in the heart of Yorkshire, the house was commissioned in the 18th century by Edwin Lascelles, 1st Earl of Harewood. He employed the finest artists and craftsmen of the time, including John Carr of York for the Palladian exterior, Robert Adam for the interiors and Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown for the landscape. Exquisitely furnished, Harewood was Thomas Chippendale’s largest single commission. Harewood displays an extraordinary collection of Renaissance masterpieces alongside fine works of 20th-century art, and was the first country house in England to have a designated space for contemporary art. All Saints’ Church, on the Harewood Estate, contains one of the most magnificent collections of late medieval alabaster tombs in Britain.

This exquisite album of photographs by Harry Cory Wright allows us to experience Harewood as if for the first time. With an introduction by David Lascelles, 8th Earl of Harewood, who shares with us his own experience of living in such a remarkable house, this book evokes an incredibly vivid sense of place.
