My Treasure of Osterley

An exhibition celebrating all there is to love and cherish about Osterley. On display between November 2021-February 2022.

The National Trust celebrated 125 years in 2020 with a new book about the most important, interesting, and cherished objects we look after: ‘125 Treasures from the Collections of the National Trust.’ One of the chosen treasures was the painting of Saint Agatha at Osterley by Carlo Dolci. 

The painting is a rare and special object for Osterley, as it is one of the only remaining paintings from the impressive collection of Sir Robert Child (1674–1721). However, it is not the only treasure at Osterley, so throughout the autumn visitors, volunteers and supporters were asked ‘what is your Treasure of Osterley?'.

The exhibition in the Jersey Galleries of the house has been curated using the responses, highlighting people’s favourite parts of the house, park and garden at Osterley. The rooms are jam-packed with reasons to celebrate and treasure Osterley. The exhibition continues in the gardens and park so wrap up warm and explore this winter.
