Art of Power: 31st March 2017 – 14th January 2018

Art of Power is an exciting new collaborative exhibition, split across two venues, The Hunterian, Glasgow and Mount Stuart and the ticket price covers entry to the exhibition at both.

This two venue exhibition offers a unique opportunity to see major paintings from the Bute Collection at Mount Stuart, one of the foremost private collections in the UK.

Featuring a selection of European and British masterpieces, highlights include works by Jan Steen, Jacob van Ruisdael, Jan Brueghel I, Anthony Van Dyck, Joshua Reynolds, Allan Ramsay, Claude Lorrain and Veronese, many of which have not been on public display in over a century.

A portion of these works will be displayed at the Hunterian, along with works on paper, including botanical illustrations and satirical engravings from the collection. The remainder of the paintings will be displayed at Mount Stuart, where they will be accompanied by historical artefacts, such as costume, letters, and rare books.
