The National Maritime Museum will play host to a brand-new exhibition, Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits – opening 28 May 2021.
Over 150 royal portraits from across five royal dynasties will be on display. In a collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery, it will show how royal portraiture was used over 500 years by different monarchs. As well as revealing how iconography was used by queens (both regnant and consort), it includes broader female involvement at court, including the royal family, mistresses and, later, female artists.
Accompanying the new exhibition is the book Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits (UK & US), which traces momentous events in British history and examines how royal portraiture has reflected individual sitters’ personalities and the wider social, cultural and historical change.
Prices Adult £10 | Child £5 | Under 25s & students £6.50 (You must book your time slot in advance!)
The exhibition will run from 28 May – 31 October 2021. For more information, go here.
