Great Art Cities Explained: London

In the first of a new series, James Payne and Joanne Shurvell combine their love of Art and Travel, as they look at less well known museums in cities around the world.

In ”Great Art Cities Explained: London”, we look at three museums whose collections were started by Mavericks. The Sir John Soane’s Museum, The Wallace Collection and Kenwood House.

We discuss works by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Canaletto and Hogarth.
