Russia – THE QUEEN’S GALLERY, BUCKINGHAM PALACE

See changing exhibitions from the Royal Collection, featuring old master paintings, rare furniture, decorative arts and images from the vast photograph collection.

Russia includes two exhibitions exploring Britain’s relationship with Russia through works of art in the Royal Collection:

Russia, Royalty & the Romanovs interweaves the familial, political, diplomatic and artistic stories of Britain and Russia and their royal families from initial contacts in the mid-16th century, through alliances, marriages and two World Wars.

Roger Fenton’s Photographs of the Crimea, 1855 is the first exhibition to focus exclusively on Roger Fenton’s pioneering photographs of the Crimean War.

Fenton’s photographs showed the impact of war to the general public for the first time and created the genre of war photography.
