Nicola Turner Inman, Assistant Curator of Decorative Arts (Projects) at the Royal Collection Trust will take you on a tour of one of the greatest art collections in the world and the last great European dynastic collection still in royal ownership. She will examine how the Royal Collection was formed and what has been its role throughout the centuries, exploring how both patronage and taste have played important parts in the formation and survival of this complex and exceptionally varied collection. From masterpieces in paint to porcelain, from furniture to Fabergé, she will delve into many of the treasures within the Collection, exploring the artworks as well as the monarchs who commissioned and purchased them.
Coffee will be served from 10.15am, with the main talk beginning at 11am sharp, and lunch from 12.30pm.
