Saint Calais' Important Collection of British Paintings

This important collection of English portraits shows the artistic innovation and prosperity in Great Britain under the reign of King George III (1760-1820).

The art of portrait painting becomes the way to express the importance of Great Britain and its influence on the whole of Europe. British and Scottish painters are all competing and searching for new techniques to paint and express the British identity through portraits of famous and important people from their country, such as Benjamin Bell.
