he first major exhibition on Tudor and Jacobean portrait miniatures in the UK for over 35 years, Elizabethan Treasures: Miniatures by Hilliard and Oliver will bring together key works from the National Portrait Gallery and major loans from public and private collections to showcase the careers of the most skilled artists of the period, Nicholas Hilliard (1547? – 1619) and Isaac Oliver (c.1565 – 1617). In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, miniature painting was regarded as an art form at which the English excelled above all others, and Hilliard and Oliver gained international fame and admiration. The exhibition will explore what these exquisite images reveal about identity, society and visual culture in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. Highlights include Hilliard and Oliver’s portraits of Elizabeth I, as well as images of James I, his wife Anne of Denmark and his three children Henry, Elizabeth and Charles (later Charles I), and miniatures of some of the most famous figures of the day, such as Sir Walter Ralegh and Sir Francis Drake.

Family portraits are a constant presence in modern life. Foreshadowing this, Thomas Gainsborough was the first British artist to make a regular practice of painting and drawing himself and his family members. Comprising of some of his best loved works, this exhibition will explore how these portraits not only expressed his affections but also helped advance his career. Featuring over fifty works from across the world, some of which have never been on display before, Gainsborough’s Family Album charts his career from youth to maturity, telling the story of an eighteenth-century provincial artist’s rise to metropolitan fame and fortune.
