Uniting the eye of a ‘connoisseur’ with the duties of a monarch has not been much in evidence over the centuries. However, one of the great exceptions was George IV who formed an unrivalled collection of art, much of which remains in the Royal Collection. As Prince of Wales, Prince Regent and monarch, he purchased paintings and works of art in vast numbers, many of these by the finest artists of the day. Dutch and Flemish masterpieces, magnificent portraits by Sir Thomas Lawrence, delicate French porcelain, intricate goldsmiths' work and much else will be displayed in a landmark exhibition at the Queen’s Gallery.
