Watford Museum is indebted to Dr. Laurie B Harwood for her extraordinary dedication and enthusiasm in researching and writing about the museum’s collection of portraits of the Essex family.

Further information about the collection, including extensive details of the history and background of each painting and biographies of the artists, is available in Portraits of the Earls of Essex, their Wives and Children in the Watford Museum, by Dr Laurie B Harwood.  This book is available from the museum shop.
