Ever since James Christie opened his doors for business in 1766, the auction house has championed British art and artists. Many of the masterpieces on view in this exhibition have been sold at Christie’s over the last 250 years. Highlights include the Circle of Hans Holbein II’s outstanding portrait of King Henry VIII, The Monarch of the Glen by Sir Edwin Landseer and Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s haunting Proserpine .

This imposing mid-16th-century portrait of King Henry VIII, from the Circle of Hans Holbein II , is based on the full-length portrait of the king from Holbein’s great wall painting of the Tudor family. The latter work was executed in 1536–37 for Whitehall Palace, but was destroyed in a fire in 1698. Holbein’s portrait of Henry is one of the most famous of any British monarch. The portrait was first recorded in Christie’s 24 January 1778 sale of the 144-piece collection of George Byng, 4th Viscount Torrington, where it was purchased by Charles, 4th Duke of Rutland, from whose family collection it is now being loaned.

Royal portraiture is also highlighted in William Dobson ’s mid-17th-century work, King Charles I , first discovered when it was put up for auction at Christie’s in 1989. One of three known small portraits of Charles I by Dobson, and painted on one of the coarse canvases he favoured, it dates from the end of the royal court’s stay in Oxford.
