Overview

One of the key events marking the Golden Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen is the opening of the new Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace.  To celebrate its inauguration and the Jubilee itself, Royal Treasures brings together over 450 of the finest and most precious paintings, drawings and works of art from the Royal Collection.  It also tells the intriguing story of the creation of the collection itself, and details the rebuilding of The Queen's Gallery, where these exceptional works of art will be on show throughout Jubilee year.

The Royal Collection, held by The Queen in trust for the nation, is one of the most important in the world.  It contains paintings by great masters such as Holbein, Rubens and Van Dyck, drawings by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael, works of art by FabergĂ© and the great silversmiths of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and the finest examples of English and European furniture, European and Oriental ceramics, sculpture, books and manuscripts, miniattures, and arms and armour.

Royal Treasures, with its lavish use of specially commissioned photography and detailed histories of each item illustrated, is a unique record of masterpieces from this celebrated collection.

    An Extraordinary Collection Without Peer

    My mother-in-law was from England & I have visited her family twice. I've had the privilege to tour the Tower of London, Kensington and Buckingham Palace. What I found there was nothing short of amazing. In the introduction, Hugh Roberts explains that the Royal Collection is far more than paintings. It includes jewelry, furniture, sculpture, books, stamps, tapestries and objet d'art that is beyond compare. According to page 59, there are also 1,400 clocks. Among my favorites are the Vermeer painting (#17) and the Sevres potpourri vase from Buckingham Palace (#122). What strikes me the most about this book is that the Royal Collection is made up of 'contemporary' objects gathered over many generations over several centuries. I can only imagine how much there would have been if it were not for Oliver Cromwell in 1649.
