Description: Art was everywhere in Tudor England. From portraits to furniture and armour to coins, Tudor craftspeople painted, carved, engraved and struck narratives and symbols into a vast array of media. Art could serve a wide range of social, political and educational functions, its meaning dictated greatly by where it was made, and where it was seen.
Taking works in the Wallace Collection as our starting point, we’ll explore three key locations where art and crafted objects could be found in Tudor England: the Long Gallery, the Miniaturist’s Studio, and the Tilting Yard. In each place, we’ll explore the personalities responsible for the artworks’ creation, and the reasons for their commission.
