Francis De Lassus Saint-Genies is a French artist born in Brittany at Val André in 1925. After his studies at Julian's Academy in Paris, he dedicates himself for a long time to the portrait. In search of the secret character of his models, he has to reach a very personal expression where the outer world, often inversed, encloses the reflection of the individual mystery.

Rushton Hall in Rushton, Northamptonshire, was the ancestral home of the Tresham family from 1438, when William Tresham bought the estate.

Rushton Hall Northamptonshire was Attorney General to King Henry V and Speaker of the House of Commons and was murdered in 1450. Sir Thomas Tresham was three times High Sheriff of Northamptonshire. His son Thomas, also a High Sheriff, built the Triangular Lodge in the grounds of the hall in 1592. His son, Francis Tresham, was involved in the Gunpowder Plot and died in the Tower of London in 1605.

The Hall was sold in 1619 to Sir William Cockayne, Lord Mayor of London who was the first Governor of Londonderry, and on his death in 1626 passed to his eldest son Charles, later Viscount Cullen, The estates were sold many times afterwards

In 1854 the estate was sold to Clara Thornhill (later Clarke-Thornhill). Charles Dickens was a great friend of Clara and visited Rushton several times. The fictitious Haversham Hall in Great Expectations was conceived from the Hall.

Interesting Fact:

The Hazelton family bought the hall in and restored it to open as a 4 star hotel and spa.

The estate has early 20th century formal terraced gardens designed by Thomas Mawson between 1905-1909. The rest of the estate has separate ownership to the hotel with features dating back to the 16th century and before. The 16th-century Triangular Lodge in the former parkland is owned by English Heritage
