When Elizabeth II came to the throne, she inherited a picture collection to rival any in the world - The Royal Collection of Art

Henry VIII can be considered the founder of the Royal Collection. Each successive monarch added to the collection and in 1953, when Elizabeth II came to the throne, she inherited a picture collection to rival any in the world. The Royal Collection of Art contains pictures from the Early Renaissance period to the Victorian era and beyond and is an important reflection of both the taste of the Monarch and of the social and economic thinking of the country at the time. We consider the forming of the collection before looking at a selection of paintings and the stories behind them, covering the Tudor period to the present day. Join Arts Society Lecturer Linda Collins to learn more.

Please note: Further information for joining online via Zoom will be provided to attendees by 24 hours prior to the event.
