Lady Lilian's portrait
Coughton Court has a new portrait on display in Lady Lilian’s Sitting Room, it’s a portrait of Lady Lilian Throckmorton!
This portrait has been kindly loaned to the National Trust from the family for the season. Lady Lilian is one of the women focused on in our new ‘Four Women. One War’ exhibition, which can be seen on the ground floor of the Mansion.
The portrait is a particularly lovely pastel and was a favourite of her grand-daughter Mrs McLaren-Throckmorton. Both Lady Lilian and Mrs T were dedicated to the long term care of Coughton Court.
