Time Out says

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.
