NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY

Tudors to Windsors

British Royal Portraits

Introduction by Sir David Cannadine.

Tudors to Windsors

Portraits of British royalty, spanning 500 years of painting and photography

This publication explores five British royal dynasties, from the Tudors to the Windsors, drawing on the Collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London, which embraces over 500 years of British history. It includes paintings and photographs by many of the most important artists to have worked in Britain, from Peter Lely and Godfrey Kneller to Cecil Beaton and Dorothy Wilding.

A number of features on topics such as Royal Favorites, Royal Weddings, Satire, Royals at War and Royal Fashion provide insights into particular aspects of royal portraiture and trends within the genre. Tudors to Windsors also considers how each dynasty has been perceived and interpreted subsequently, with reference to popular culture and contemporary sources.

The publication includes a foreword by the Gallery's Director, a fully illustrated introductory essay discussing royal patronage and key artists in royal portraiture, and an essay by David Cannadine on the historical role of the monarchy in Britain.


"King George III," studio of Allan Ramsay © National Portrait Gallery, London, is reproduced from 'Tudors to Windsors.'

Remembering Princess Diana in 'Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits'

Remembering Princess Diana in 'Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits'

"Diana, Princess of Wales," Bryan Organ's 1981 acrylic painting on canvas, is reproduced from Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits, the National Portrait Gallery's new collection of portraits of British royalty spanning 500 years of painting and photography. "When Lady Diana's portrait was unveiled just days before her wedding at St Paul's Cathedral, press attention focused on the unusual depiction of a female member of the royal family in trousers," Rosie Broadley writes, "a foretaste of what was to become a media obsession with the Princess of Wales's clothes and appearance. Within months of its unveiling, the portrait had been slashed as a political protest over British involvement in Ireland, but was successfully restored, the damage remaining only barely perceptible…" We remember Princess Diana on the anniversary of her death on this day in 1997. continue to blog
