About

The First Georgians: Art and Monarchy is the theme of the fascinating exhibition at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace.

In 1714 George I ascended the throne as the first British monarch of the German House of Hanover. With the beginning of this new dynastic age came something of a quiet revolution. A period of time that was arguably the most dramatic in the way it changed British political, intellectual and cultural life. To celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Georgian era, this exhibition explores royal patronage and taste in the reigns of George I and George II, a time when Britain was described as being the world’s most liberal, commercial and modern society.

Bringing together some spectacular art, this exhibition shows off over 300 works from the Royal Collection, with examples taken from royal residences across the UK.
