Eurich was one of the outstanding British artists of the 20th century. Painting in the figurative tradition, his work is included in the collections of leading galleries around the world, as well as in the collections of provincial galleries throughout the United Kingdom.
 
From humble origins, Jupe rose to become a Master Builder in Southampton and built much of the new suburb of Bitterne Park in the early years of the twentieth century.
   

Stibbert made his fortune in India and rose through the ranks of the East India Company’s army in the second half of the eighteenth century to become, on two occasions, Commander in Chief Bengal. He bought the Manor of Portswood near Southampton, together with the title Lord of the Manor, and there built his family seat. His grandson, Frederick Stibbert, devoted the family fortune to historical and artistic collections and these form what is now the world famous Museo Stibbert in Florence.

Famous for his concept of the ‘Picturesque’, Gilpin was also a leading educational reformer of the late eighteenth century and the devoted pastor of Boldre Church in the New Forest.
