French Influence on the British Royal Art Collection,
Architecture and Interior Design

Lecturer: Oliver Everett
French taste and style have greatly influenced British royal architecture and art collecting. The Royal Art Collection contains many pieces of French art, including furniture, porcelain, clocks, bronzes, silverware, paintings, drawings, watercolours, miniatures and books, much of which was collected by George IV, but also by Queen Victoria and others.
