From Holbein to Warhol, See the Very Best Royal Portraits in the World

Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits from Holbein to Warhol sheds new light on changing ideas of monarchy and nationhood in Britain. The exhibition features portraits of British royalty spanning 500 years, by artists from Hans Holbein and Sir Joshua Reynolds to Annie Leibovitz and Andy Warhol. Don’t miss this crash course in art history this Friday, October 19th!

In a sweeping survey, "Tudors to Windsors" covers the cavalcade of kings, queens, princes, and princesses who have graced the British crown. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is the only U.S. venue to host this unprecedented exhibition, part of a major partnership with the National Portrait Gallery in London. Some 150 objects - most never before seen outside of England - tell the story of Britain’s monarchy through masterworks of painting, sculpture, and photography.

Visitors have an extraordinary opportunity to come face-to-face with the fascinating figures of British royalty. "Tudors to Windsors" explores four royal dynasties: the House of Tudor (1485–1603), the House of Stuart (1603–1714), the House of Hanover (1714–1901), and the present-day House of Windsor. Among the many works of art on view are portraits featuring King Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth I, King George I, Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Diana, and Prince William.

Members and children under 12 receive free admission. Discounted rates are available for Tuesday and Wednesday visits.
