Bendigo Art Gallery is again collaborating with DATTA to provide a Professional Development morning focusing on Tudors to Windsors: British Royal Portraits This exhibition features more than 200 treasures from London’s revered National Portrait Gallery, many of which have never before seen outside England.
Tudors to Windsors traces the history of the British monarchy through the outstanding collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London. This exhibition highlights major events in British (and world) history from the sixteenth century to the present, examining the ways in which royal portraits were impacted by both the personalities of individual monarchs and wider historical change.
In addition to viewing masterworks of painting, sculpture and photography, teachers will be able to see a dress worn by Diana, Princes of Wales during her 1983 visit to Australia, together with George IV’s royal christening gown and the coronation gloves of Queen Elizabeth I (1558) and II (1953), a J. Morena Manila embroidered evening dress worn by Princess Margaret in 1980, an 1875 silk evening dress worn by Queen Victoria, and a mourning brooch containing a lock of hair from Queen Mary II.
After the Professional Development, teachers can enjoy shopping in the gallery shop or strolling through the View Street arts precinct with its unique fashion shops, visiting other art spaces or walking through the delightful Rosalind Park.
