Today we visited The Wallace Collection for the first time. This is a private art collection that was given to the nation at the end of the 19th century by the Wallace family. The family stopped collecting in the middle of the 19th century. Their tastes included Renaissance and Romantic, Dutch, French, and English artists. Although our primary interest was Rembrandt’s painting of his son we found many other paintings of interest.
We walked home through Green Park and St. James Park and across the river.
