The Queens Gallery, Buckingham Palace
Visit a space dedicated to the Royal Collection, one of the world's largest and most significant art collections put together by British Kings and Queens over hundreds of years.
One of the last great European royal collections still intact, this expansive collection is made up of over a million items. Arguably one of the most magnificent British monarchs, George IV built an exceptional art collection, much of which is within the Royal Collection today. View the paintings, metalwork, textiles, furniture, watercolours, books and ceramics created by the finest artists of the day.
- Japan: Courts and Culture – 8 April – 26 February 2023
The Royal Collection holds some of the most significant examples of Japanese art and design in the western world. For the first time, highlights from this outstanding collection are brought together to tell the story of 300 years of diplomatic, artistic and cultural exchange between the British and Japanese royal and imperial families. The exhibition includes rare pieces of porcelain and lacquer, samurai armour, embroidered screens and diplomatic gifts from the reigns of James I to Queen Elizabeth II. Together, they offer a unique insight into the worlds of ritual, honour and artistry linking the courts and cultures of Britain and Japan.
