George IV: Art & Spectacle - Until 3rd May 2020
The Regency Period was marked by extravagance and lavishness, now known as Regency Style. King George IV, also Prince Regent took an avid interest in architecture and art, and his reign is seen as one of the most magnificent of all the monarchs. From 1820, he purchased paintings, metal-works, textiles, furniture, watercolours, books and ceramics in vast numbers by some of the major artists of the day. This exhibition offers a glittering insight in to the reign of the glorious, yet unpopular monarch.
