19th Century British paintings

The British collection is particularly rich in paintings of the 18th and 19th centuries, with artists like Thomas Gainsborough, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Sir Thomas Lawrence and J.M.W. Turner all represented. By good fortune, the works by Gainsborough, Reynolds and Lawrence are portraits of sitters with strong Northern Irish connections, namely Arthur, 1st Marquess of Donegall (c.1780) by Gainsborough, Miss Theodosia Magill, afterwards Countess of Clanwilliam (1765) by both Gainsborough and Reynolds, and Harriet Anne, Countess of Belfast (c.1822-23) by Lawrence.
