Miniatures from the Time of Napoleon in the Tansey Collection

This exhibition showcases a total of 150 works from the time of Napoleon I (from 1795 to 1815). These tiny portraits, which were generally intended for personal use, date from the “golden age” of miniature painting. They exhibit a high degree of artistic skill and refined craftsmanship. Unlike the staged, theatrical portraits of absolutism, now for the first time we see realistic likenesses of people who appear “modern” – a gallery of women, men and children from a period of political upheaval dominated by wars.

Opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday 11.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
