   Lost Masterpiece

Discover Tatton Park Mansion’s lost masterpiece

Other than the Royal Collection, Tatton Park's Mansion is the only place in the country where you can see a rare Salviati portrait on display.
Back in February, a team of art experts for BBC’s Britain’s Lost Masterpieces identified one of Tatton Park’s paintings as a unique work by distinguished renaissance artist, Francesco Salviati. Up until then, the portrait was considered simply as ‘A Physician’ by an unattributed artist. Thanks to the latest easing of lockdown guidelines, you can now book tickets to visit the Mansion and see this 500-year-old masterpiece for yourself.

“We’re delighted to share our lost masterpiece with visitors" says Vicky Rowbotham, Mansion and Collections Manager. The fact that we now know the Mansion is the only museum in Britain where you can see a Salviati portrait on display makes re-opening this year doubly exciting.”

Your Mansion visit starts with an opportunity to get up close and personal to this special painting. Vicky explains “We’re displaying the Salviati portrait at eye level, so visitors can see the restoration work for themselves, and admire the intricate details revealed during the Britain’s Lost Masterpieces programme."

About the Mansion

Set amidst more than 50 acres of Tatton Park Gardens, at the heart of 1,000 acres of landscaped parkland, our elegant Mansion sits in an elevated position. The impressive portico of the South Front dominates the view of the house from the Parkland.

From the turn of the 18th century the Egerton family made a home on this site. An earlier house was extensively re-modelled in the Neo-Classical style, between 1780 and 1813 by the architects Samuel Wyatt (1737-1807) and Lewis William Wyatt (1777–1853). The rich furnishings of the Tatton Park Mansion and its important collection of paintings and books reflect the growing wealth and status of the Egerton family at the end of the 18th and during the 19th centuries.

The Mansion houses one of the National Trust's finest libraries and an outstanding collection of Gillow's of Lancaster furniture. Tatton Park's lively musical life during this period is highlighted in recent films and brought to life with the 1897 Ball story. The extensive array of domestic offices and servants’ quarters and the Mansion offers a complete view of life in days gone by.

The Mansion Collections 

Over 14,000 items in Tatton Park's collection can now be viewed on line on the new National Trust Collections website.

Mansion Exhibitions

Throughout the year Tatton Park hosts a number of exhibitions in the Mansion reflecting a particular aspect of the Park and its rich history. The permanent Maurice Egerton exhibition details fascinating facts about the life and interests of Maurice Egerton, the last Baron Egerton of Tatton Park.
