Hope was of wealthy Amsterdam banking stock and was a great collector and patron. He became a great promoter of the 'Goût Grec' 'following his grand tour of 1787-1795 which imbued him with the 'Spirit of Corinth and Athens'. His house in Duchess Street open to serious art collectors was witness to this passion and was much admired and had a profound influence on taste in 19th century.
