Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits

Exhibition and Shows

16 Mar 2019 to 14 Jul 2019

Tudors to Windsors traces the history of the British monarchy through the outstanding collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London.

This exhibition highlights major events in British (and world) history from the sixteenth century to the present, examining the ways in which royal portraits were impacted by both the personalities of individual monarchs and wider historical change.

Presenting some of the most significant royal portraits, the exhibition will explore five royal dynasties: the Tudors, the Stuarts, the Georgians, the Victorians and the Windsors shedding light on key figures and important historical moments.

This exhibition also offers insight into the development of British art including works by the most important artists to have worked in Britain, from Sir Peter Lely and Sir Godfrey Kneller to Cecil Beaton and Annie Liebovitz.

To bring these royal figures to life, Bendigo Art Gallery has secured key loans of historic fashion, armour and personal effects which will be featured alongside these magnificent and imposing portraits.

Significant additional lenders: Historic Royal Palaces, the Bath Fashion Museum, Royal Armouries, FIDM Museum, LA, National Gallery of Victoria, State Library of Victoria and Art Gallery of South Australia.
