Baptism of Christ, 1450 (egg tempera on panel)

My favourite painting: Lady Sarah Chatto

‘I find the colours and the drawing of the Italian landscape inspirational and each time I stand and contemplate this painting, I discover something new about it.’

My favourite painting: Adam Zamoyski

'One look at the picture evokes the stiff-terrier-legged, rat-murdering, wild-boar-defying bravery and the heart-melting sweetness of the little thing that brings so much joy to our lives.'
