George IV: Art & Spectacle

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
During his reign, King George IV was widely derided for his profligacy, infidelity and greed (over just one decade he amounted debts equivalent to £31 million in today's money). However, one of the upshots to all that insane spending was that he collected some pretty nice art, plus one hell of a lot of porcelain and other decorative items. This show at the Queen's Gallery displays part of George's collection, including paintings by Rembrandt, Gainsborough and Stubbs.
