This special display, focusing on the portraiture of the Tudor monarchs, will allow visitors to rediscover these well-known kings and queens through the most complete presentation of their images staged to date. Works from the Gallery’s Collection will be presented alongside exceptional loans and a prized possession of each monarch, as well as recent research undertaken as part of the Making Art in Tudor Britain project, to help visitors understand how and why such images were made.
We are able to offer a facilitated session in the special display or a Lecture Theatre discussion (for secondary groups) as an introduction to the Real Tudors: Kings and Queens Rediscovered. BOOKING ESSENTIAL
