Harewood House

Harewood House is the very foundation of Turner's association with Yorkshire; it is because of the First Earl of Harewood and his son, Viscount Lascelles, that Turner came to Yorkshire in the first place - to make a series of watercolours of Harewood House and Castle, and two oils of Plompton Rocks.  He was then able to use Harewood as a springboard for a more extensive tour of Yorkshire and thus began an association of nearly thirty years.

Edward, Viscount Lascelles was one of Turner's most important early patrons and supported Turner through to becoming fully established and successful.
