Why There’s Still Ample Time For A Right Royal Art Show

Why There’s Still Ample Time For A Right Royal Art Show

If you want to see an art exhibition in London, there is never a shortage of options. From the permanent exhibitions running at venues such as the National Portrait Gallery to the Tate Britain to the time-limited shows on display at a plethora of galleries, art fans will never be short of ideas.

Indeed, if your own artwork (or purchases) is likely to be keeping London’s framers busy, you will likely be aware of just how much life there is in the capital’s art scene, ranging from cutting-edge contemporary styles to an ongoing appreciation for historic works.

A place those with a penchant for the latter may have overlooked when seeking out exhibitions is Britain’s grandest residence, Buckingham Palace. The annual opening offers the public a chance to see an array of pictures as grand as any hanging in galleries elsewhere.

The 2023 summer opening continues until September 24th, so there are still a few weeks yet when you can see the many artistic treasures on display. Among them are works by the likes of Rembrandt, Rubens and Van Dyck.

With the coronation having taken place in May, many of the vestments and items from the occasion are on show, which may draw the biggest crowds, leaving you with more chances to admire historic paintings in relative peace.

The Royal Collection is regarded as one of the world’s greatest collections and has its own trust. The works on public display when Buckingham Palace is open for general public visits are just some of what can be seen and there will be other opportunities even after September 24th to view works in the collection in the Palace.

For instance, November 10th is the opening day of an exhibition titled Holbein at the Tudor Court, which is hosted by the Queen’s Gallery and continues until April 14th next year.

If you want a bit of right royal inspiration, there will be many opportunities to find it at the Palace.
