Europeana Collections

The Royal Collection, Great Britain

Collection:

The Royal Collection is one of the largest and most important art collections in the world, and one of the last great European royal collections to remain intact. Comprising almost all aspects of the fine and decorative arts and running to more than a million objects, the Collection is a unique and valuable record of the personal tastes of kings and queens over the past 500 years.

Following the execution of Charles I in 1649, the greater part of the King’s magnificent possessions was sold by order of Oliver Cromwell, and the Royal Collection has largely been formed since the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660.

The Royal Collection is held in trust by The Queen as Sovereign for her successors and the nation.  It is not owned by her as a private individual.

Conditions: Images may be free to use upon personal application to the Picture Library detailing the academic project.
