Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Harringay House Painting: A Hunter Visiting a Woman at her Toilet, Gabriel Metsu, c. 1661-1663

Bought by Edward Gray for 400 Guineas, this interior scene is now in a private collection somewhere in the United States.

At one point in time, it belonged to the heirs of Alphonse de Rothschild in Paris, France, from where the Germans plundered it in the summer of 1940. After being processed at the Jeu de Paume, Hermann Goering took custody of this painting as he did of many others from the Rothschild collection.

It was repatriated to France in September 1945 and subsequently restituted to the Rothschild family.
