May 2019 – The Wallace Women at The Wallace Collection

A late morning special guided tour of the renowned Wallace Collection with a focus on the Wallace Women, from courtesans to queens. 

Sulley’s famous portrait of Queen Victoria will set the tone but there are numerous others from Countess Blessington to Madame de Pompadour and three portraits of actress Mary Robinson as Perdita, by the three greatest portraitists of her age – Reynolds, Romney and Gainsborough.
