About the Collection:
“This first-ever exhibition to focus on images of artists in the Royal Collection includes both self-portraits by world-renowned figures, such as Rembrandt van Rijn, Peter Paul Rubens, Artemisia Gentileschi, Lucian Freud and David Hockney, and representations of artists by their friends and pupils, including the most reliable surviving likeness of Leonardo da Vinci by his student, Francesco Melzi. Through paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and decorative arts from the 15th to the 21st century, the exhibition examines the cult and changing status of the artist, images of the artist’s studio, and the role of monarchs in commissioning, collecting and displaying portraits of artists.”
