The first exhibition to focus on images of artists from within the Royal Collection, Portrait of the Artist not only show-cases self-portraits by worldrenowned artists including Rembrandt, Rubens, Artemisia Gentileschi, Lucian Freud and David Hockney, but also features images of artists by their friends, relatives and pupils, including the most reliable surviving likeness of Leonardo da Vinci by his student, Francesco Melzi. Well-known self-portraits intended to advertise the artist’s talents will be shown alongside more intimate and personal works. Courtauld Alumnus and Surveyor of The Queen’s Pictures, Desmond Shawe- Taylor (MA 1979) will lead us on a tour of this fascinating selection of works.
