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.
Drawing on the research of acknowledged experts in their field, this series explores the many and varied artistic associations with Greenwich.
