We came again to see the fabulous George IV exhibition. The objects on display are outstanding and all have a direct connection to the King. Allow at least 2 hours for a good look. Now is the perfect time to go as it is so quiet.

We visited this lovely gallery to see the George IV Exhibition. It was fascinating. A really well curated experience providing us punters with themes to follow and a sense of story. Many artefacts were beautiful and historically interesting. There were very few other people there. It was amazing to be able to get really close to the exhibits without any worries about blocking other’s view as there were only about 12 of us there! The staff seemed genuinely pleased to see us and often outnumbered us! Everything was incredibly clean and well organised for Corona virus.

An entirely appropriate title for an exhibition of great art collected by a King who liked to make a spectacle of himself. Thus it is the portrait of the King in his coronation robes by Sir Thomas Lawrence which dominates the largest of the three rooms in this exhibition larger even than the other portraits he commissioned of the victors over Napoleon including Austria’s Prince Metternich and Pope Pius VII. Equally splendid are the writing tables, clocks and miscellaneous ornaments. A painting of the Congress of Vienna with the Duke of Wellington entering stage left to replace the Foreign Secretary Castlereigh as the leader of the British delegation for the history buffs. Portraits from the ancien regime of Louis XVI and his finance minister Calonne. But most impressive of all a Rubens landscape featuring Saint George purchased for the then astronomical sum of 3,000 Guineas. An excellent complimentary audio guide; finally just before the exit a shop stuffed with royal tat.

Booking in advance for the George IV exhibition (only ever exhibitions, never a permanent collection), ensured that our wait was brief to enter. The exhibition was incredibly comprehensive and the audio guide was excellent- I heartily recommend it.

This review is prompted by the exhibit on the collection of George IV: Power and Splendour, but it is really about the Gallery itself, which does not receive the attention it deserves. The original structure was a conservatory, one of three designed by John Nash in the style of an Ionic temple. Completed in 1831, it became a private chapel for Queen Victoria in 1843. It was destroyed in an air raid in during WW II, and then redeveloped as a gallery for the Royal Collection in 1962. It houses many masterpieces from this collection. The Queen's Gallery was opened in 2002 as part of the Golden Jubilee celebration. I have seen several exhibitions and irrespective of the focus, the colors, lighting and staging are brilliant. It is an intimate place in which one can spend a little time or a lot. The staff are exceptionally knowledgeable and truly devoted to the gallery. Many tourists seem to spend as much time in the shop as in the gallery. The shop does have some unique memorabilia.
