The Artists of Greenwich

As a major centre of Royal power and patronage, Greenwich played host to a number of significant artists – for example, Hans Holbein, Orazio and Artemisia Gentileschi, the van de Veldes, and James Thornhill – between the 15th and the 18th centuries. 

In addition, the development of the Naval Gallery at Greenwich Hospital in the first half of the 19th century meant that Greenwich became a centre for the display of art, especially with the gift of many important paintings from the collections of George IV and William IV.
