To commemorate the 300th anniversary of George I's accession to the British throne in 1714, the Royal Collection Trust, the Wallace Collection and the Society for Court Studies are organising a study day dedicated to the often overlooked art patronage of the first two Georges and their families. In addition to investigating official commissions and personal taste, it will explore differences and similarities between the arts at court in Britain as well as Prussia, France and Spain in the Age of Enlightenment. The day will conclude with a private view of The First Georgians: Art and Monarchy 1714-1760 at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace and a glass of wine.

Cost: £35. Includes exhibition entry at the Queens Gallery, excludes lunch
