Portraying the Past: Paintings from the Society of Antiquaries of London
Burlington House, Society of Antiquaries of London, 30 June — 1 August 2014

posterAn exhibition of the Society’s collection of paintings including portraits of eighteenth-century antiquaries and rare fifteenth- and sixteenth-century portraits of medieval and Tudor monarchs and rulers of early modern Europe. These include the outstanding group of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century panel paintings bequeathed to the Society in 1828 by Thomas Kerrich, FSA, including portraits of Richard III, Henry VII and Henry VIII, as well as such works of international importance as the portraits of Jan van Scorel, by Antonis Mor, and of Mary I, by Hans Eworth.
