Doncaster Museum & Art Gallery is fortunate to have in its collection three beautiful oil paintings by one of the most famous English artists of the eighteenth century, Joseph Wright of Derby. They are portraits of William Brooke and Elizabeth and William Pigot. Elizabeth Pigot was William Brooke’s daughter. In 1758 she married William Pigot, and between then and her death eight years later she gave birth to six children.
