Portrait Miniatures: Highlights from the Grantchester Collection

In 2019 Compton Verney received a bequest of 70 portrait miniatures from the late Lady Grantchester, sister of founder Sir Peter Moores. The bequest will be the focus of a special display in the Women’s Library, which will shed new light on these intriguing objects.
