London Art Week 2015

From Merchants to Monarchs: Frans Pourbus the Younger

The Weiss Gallery will be participating in London Art Week, which takes place from 3-10 July 2015, and looks forward to welcoming collectors to our Jermyn Street premises. The gallery will be exhibiting a remarkable collection of seven portraits by Frans Pourbus the Younger - court portraitist of the Hapsburgs, Medicis, and Bourbons. Outside of the Medici collection in the Uffizi and Pitti Palace, this will be the largest group of works by Pourbus ever assembled, and is a tribute to Mark Weiss’s dedication to the artist. Having already exhibited the collection to great acclaim at this year's TEFAF, the gallery is proud to display it once more to our London Art Week visitors. 

As well as this, we will be displaying an eclectic and significant selection of British portraits, which range from depictions of the landed gentry from the early Elizabethan period to the pinnacle of Jacobite activity in Europe. The gallery is London's leading specialist in Tudor, Stuart and Northern European portraiture, and will be showcasing an unrivalled collection of Britain’s most famous monarchs - from Bloody Mary Tudor to the Old Pretender, James Francis Edward Stuart. 

We look forward to welcoming you!
