Room 18: miniature case at the National Portrait Gallery

Art, Invention & Thought: the Romantics

This room has as its central focus a significant body of portraits of Romantic poets and figures from the Regency period. A portrait of Wordsworth, flanked either side by portraits of Mary Wollstonecraft and her later husband William Godwin dominate one wall. On the wall opposite there is a portrait of Byron, and the room also includes portraits of Mary Shelley, Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Scott, Burns and in a pastel case Jane Austen. Portraits of Davy and Jenner hang either side of the doorway and one corner of the room includes portraits of Turner, Constable, Blake, Flaxman and Fuseli.
