Elizabethan Treasures: Miniatures by Hilliard and OliverSmall is beautiful and nowhere more so than at this National Portrait Gallery display, the first major exhibition on Tudor and Jacobean portrait miniatures in the UK for over 35 years. Showcasing the most skilled artists of the period, Nicholas Hilliard and French born Isaac Oliver, Elizabethan Treasures includes portraits of Elizabeth I, Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake. Regarded as an art form at which the English excelled, these exquisite miniatures contain clues about identity, society and visual culture in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. Used as a means of showing favour, loyalty and expressing close relationships the small paintings could be worn as a necklace, pinned to clothing or secretly concealed as a token of friendship, patronage or love.

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
