Description

British painting is one of the Royal Collection's greatest strengths. The paintings are dispersed throughout the royal residences, but to give a hint of the richness of the Royal Collection's holdings, The Quest for Albion brings together forty-six works - many instantly recognisable, others less familiar - and places them firmly in the context of Britain's national heritage.
