A Royal Collector

“Everyone is our neighbour, no matter what race, creed or colour…”

Queen Elizabeth II

Royal courts have always been key patrons of the arts. The British Royal Family is no exception. Many famous works have passed through it and currently it contains many thousands of pieces. There are hundreds of Da Vinci drawings, more than 50 Canalettos, dozens of Rembrandts and Gainsboroughs, even a couple of Vermeers. The reigning monarch has control over the display of these treasures throughout the Royal palaces, houses and buildings. The late Queen was a big fan of the old Dutch masters. Her particular favourite was this painting The Letter by Gerard Ter Borch. She was understandably taken with the amazing silk skirt. #sadtimes #letsmakelemonade
