Physicians in the frame: portrait tour of the RCP

 
  5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
 £15

In this out-of-hours tour, discover the portrait collection of the Royal College of Physicians (RCP).

The RCP Museum holds a fascinating collection of hundreds of fine art portraits, featuring college presidents, pioneering physicians and healthcare workers. Join us for an evening exploring these artworks, the people that inspired them and encounter great British and European artists.

In 1596 the RCP announced that any member or 'noble person' could display his portrait or coat of arms in our headquarters on payment of £10. After sadly losing many of our early paintings in the Great Fire of London in 1666, we began a deliberate policy of rebuilding our portrait collection in the 18th century. Today we continue to collect and commission contemporary artworks and portraiture of notable medical figures past and present.

Pick up a complimentary glass of wine and take a journey with us to discover our early presidents, inspiring women in medicine, famous painters and healthcare workers of the COVID-19 pandemic.
