First Georgians

On 11 April The Queen's Gallery in Buckingham Palace opens The First Georgians: Art & Monarchy 1714-1760. This exhibition celebrates the 300th anniversary of George I ascending the throne as the first British monarch of the German House of Hanover. It brings together over 300 works in the Royal Collection from royal residences across the UK. Shown is Guido Reni's Cleopatra with the Asp (c. 1628). Admission is £9.50 adult, £8.75 silver surfer, which isn't bad for a show of this quality (CLICK).
