Montagu, duke of Montagu (new creation) and 4th earl of Cardigan, George Brudenell

British, 1712 - 1790

Brudenell, George


George Brudenell, later Montagu, 4th earl of Cardigan and later duke of Montagu (new creation, 1712-1790), his wife Mary (1727-1788, née Montagu), and their son, John, Marquess of Monthermer and Lord Montagu of Boughton (1735-1770), were responsible for the acquisition of an outstanding collection of paintings, largely Dutch and Flemish. At George's death, his son John having predeceased him and been unmarried, the collection was inherited by his daughter Elizabeth, who in 1767 had married Henry, 3rd duke of Buccleuch and 5th duke of Queensberry (1746-1812). The paintings ultimately formed the core of the Buccleuch collection at Montagu House in Whitehall, London.
