The First Georgians: Art and Monarchy 1714-1760

Marking the 300th anniversary of the beginning of the Georgian era, T he First Georgians: Art and Monarchy 1714-1760 at The Queen's Gallery brings together more than 300 works in the Royal Collection in order to explore royal patronage and taste during the reigns of George I and George II. When George I ascended the throne in 1714, becoming the first British monarch of the German House of Hanover, it marked the beginning of one of the most dramatic periods of change across British politics, intellectual and cultural life. This exhibition showcases a time when Britain was the world's most liberal, commercial and modern society.
