While some museums are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are currently open as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
Sixty-five key paintings in the Royal Collection, usually hung in the Picture Gallery at Buckingham Palace, went on public display together for the first time at the start of this month – in the Queen’s Gallery, to allow for renovation works on the palace to begin. The show, which includes masterpieces by the likes of Titian, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Dyck and Canaletto, has been shuttered after just two weeks due to Covid-19 restrictions in London, but the Royal Collection has published extensive materials relating to the display on its website. These include texts and images exploring each of the three themed rooms, and a 3D virtual tour. Find out more from the Royal Collection’s website.
