Situated in the heart of London, Hertford House is home to one of the world’s finest collections of French eighteenth-century Old Master paintings and decorative arts. The Collection was formed over five generations of the Hertford family before being given to the Nation by Lady Wallace in 1897. Best known for its paintings by Boucher, Fragonard and Watteau, the museum also boasts outstanding works of porcelain, furniture and an impressive array of arms and armour. The Wallace Collection offers a range of versatile galleries and spaces for celebrations and special events. To make the most of this inimitable Collection, private views and guided tours can be arranged.
Hailed as ‘the greatest picture gallery in Europe’, the Great Gallery showcases some of the world’s most celebrated Old Master paintings and houses our most iconic pieces, such as Frans Hals’ The Laughing Cavalier and works by Titian, Rubens and Velázquez.
