Art Museums of London The Wallace Collection Tour
This tour aims to visit other, equally important art museums in the city. In the morning you will visit The Wallace Collection. The Wallace Collection is an art collection in London in the former townhouse of the Seymour family, Marquesses of Hertford. It comprises an extensive collection of fine and decorative arts from the 15th to the 19th centuries with important holdings of French 18th-century paintings, furniture, arms and armour, porcelain and Old Master paintings arranged into 30 galleries.
It was established in 1897 from the private collection mainly created by Richard Seymour-Conway, 4th Marquess of Hertford (1800–1870), who left both it and the house to his illegitimate son Sir Richard Wallace (1818–1890), whose widow bequeathed the entire collection to the nation. The collection opened to permanent public view in 1900 in Hertford House and remains there to this day. A condition of the bequest was that no object should ever leave the collection, even for loan exhibitions.
After the French Revolution, many wealthy families in the United Kingdom purchased many rich works of the ancient regime and indeed, the three collections of The Wallace Collection, Waddesdon Manor and The Royal Collection, all three located in the United Kingdom, forms probably the most extensive collections of French 18th-century decorative arts in the world, with the exception of the French collections of the Musée du Louvre, Château de Versailles and Mobilier National in France. In Wallace Collection you will be guided by experts of the museum. During this 75-minute tour, you will be able to visit paintings and drawings, furniture, ceramics, European and Oriental arms and armour, sculpture, miniatures, Medieval and Renaissance works of art, Goldsmiths’ work and many more. After a traditional English lunch, you will be taken to one of the art museums of your choice such as Royal Academy of Arts, Queen’s House, The Courtauld Gallery, Sir John Soane’s Museum, Guildhall Art Gallery, Jewish Museum, Dulwich Picture Gallery, Somerset House, Leighton House Museum and Art Gallery, Saatchi Gallery, Horniman Museum and Gardens, Banqueting House, Kenwood House, Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, Bankside Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery, Hayward Gallery, Barbican Gallery, UCL Art Museum and many more upon your request.
