Hidden From View: The 5th Duke of Portland’s Art Collection

A new Miniature display curated by Vanessa Remington, Senior Curator at The Royal Collection will open 31 March 2017.

Best known for the extensive tunnels he built underneath Welbeck, the 5th Duke of Portland is revealed in a new light through this extraordinary collection of miniature paintings.

The 5th Duke of Portland was one of a trio of major 19th century British collectors in this field, and Remington describes The Portland Collection’s miniatures as “probably second only to the Royal Collection”.

The display will run until 30/09/2017.
