Windsor Castle hosts exhibition of royal proportions

Date Posted: 17/04/2013

An exhibition charting the history of the royal families’ art work, Royal Paintbox: Royal Artists Past and Present, will run at Windsor Castle from 22nd June to 24th January.

For generations, Britain’s kings, queens and their families have been inspired to paint, sketch and sculpt. The exhibition will include works by George III and his children; Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and their children; King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra and by Her Majesty The Queen. 

Watercolours by the Prince of Wales

Also on display are a group of watercolours by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, who is chairman of The Royal Collection Trust.

The Prince has described how his love of painting was inspired by his early years at Windsor Castle, where he was surrounded by great art, so it seems a fitting location for an exhibition dedicated to his family’s work.
