New display of our outstanding collection of paintings by Delaroche
Wednesday 24th February, 2010 - Sunday 23rd May, 2010
Price: Admission Free
To complement the major exhibition at the National Gallery, Painting History: Delaroche and Lady Jane Grey the Wallace Collection has mounted a special display of our paintings by Paul Delaroche – ten oils and two watercolours, the finest group of his works to be found anywhere outside France.
Delaroche was probably the most influential French painter of the early nineteenth century. He is very well represented in British collections with the National Gallery owning Lady Jane Grey and the Wallace Collection a remarkably representative group of pictures including versions of three of his most famous works, Joan of Arc in Prison, The Assassination of the duc de Guise and The Princes in the Tower.
All the Wallace Collection’s pictures are shown in the context of other early nineteenth century French and British paintings by Bonington, Delacroix, Wilkie and others, allowing fascinating comparisons to be made with the paintings on display at the National Gallery.
High quality print and canvas reproductions of our Delaroche works can be ordered through our online print sales website, http://www.wallaceprints.org/collection.php?collid=2898
