Wallace Collection

The Wallace Collection's Treasure of the Month for November is Fran├žois Lemoyne's allegorical masterpiece Time Saving Truth from Falsehood and Envy (1737). Lemoyne suffered from depression and upon finishing this painting he committed suicide. Sad end to a great artist (CLICK). The painting is featured on the cover of the September / November What's On pdf file (CLICK). Admission to The Wallace Collection in Hertford House, Manchester Square, London, is free (CLICK). A treasure trove.
