Treasures of British Art: The exhibition presents a chronological selection of works ranging from the Protected content through the late Protected content , telling the story of Britain’s rich cultural history. The exhibition invites visitors to immerse themselves in the places, personalities, and events that shaped a nation over the course of five centuries.

Treasures of British Art presents Protected content of British cultural history through the stories of its people, captured by the enduring brilliance of artists of the time. The exhibition features devotional images, portraits, landscapes and sporting scenes by the greatest artists of the British School—including Thomas Gainsborough, Thomas Lawrence and John Constable—as well as non-British artists who spent significant time in Britain—such as the Flemish artist Anthony van Dyck, and American artists Benjamin West and John Singer Sargent.

This exhibition presents groundbreaking results of recent research conducted on the collection’s renowned group of portraits from the Tudor era. Among the findings: the portrait of Henry VIII is one of seven stylistically similar Tudor royal portraits that were likely all painted by the same artist. What’s more, five of these pictures – including the Berger Henry VIII – were found to have been painted on wood from the same tree.
