Upper Landing

In this corridor adjoining the State (or Grand) Dining Room once hung “nine family pictures, and four imaginary busts: one likeness to an infant heir to the estate is singular from its having been taken after death; it bears the following writing:-“Daniel Deligne infant, octo dierum obit, secundo die Februarij. Anno Salutis, 1621. -Stilo Anglia.”

From Reminiscences of a visit to Harlaxton Manor House, The Grantham Journal, Saturday May 28, 1859.

“This painting is a copy of a rather significant 13th century painting that currently hangs in the Gesu in Rome, the mother church of the Jesuits.  The Pope granted the chapel of the Madonna della Strada (Madonna of the Way) around which the Gesu was built very early on in the history of the Jesuits.  The original still hangs in the Gesu, the painting having been recently restored in 2006.” Steven Schoenig, SJ, Saint Louis University, after a visit to the Manor, 2010.
