Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, the sixth Duke of Westminster, passed away earlier this week, leaving behind one of the most important Old Master collections in the UK. The Grosvenor fine art collection includes works by Diego Velazquez, George Stubbs, and Rembrandt, and is believed to be housed in Eaton Hall—the family’s country home, near Liverpool. Works from the collection, which will be inherited by Grosvenor’s only son, regularly go on view at the Grosvenor Museum in nearby Chester.
