Art & the Country House, launched in autumn 2020, is an online publication edited by Martin Postle, Senior research Fellow at Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art. The project focused specifically on the collection and display of works of art in the country house in Britain from the sixteenth century to the present day, it contains eight case studies: Castle Howard, Doddington Hall, Mells Manor, Mount Stuart, Petworth House, Raynham Hall, Trewithen and West Wycombe. Each house has been carefully selected so as to ensure a broad range of research topics. MAatin will talk on the project and focus  specifically on the role sporting art played in the Country House Collections.

Prior to his present appointment in October 2021, Martin was Deputy Director for Grants and Publications at the Centre.
