Hertford House: a picture-perfect setting 

Collected over five generations of one family, the museum is home to one of the world’s finest collections of Old Master paintings and French decorative arts. The vast majority of artwork within the collection was acquired across London and Paris between 1800 and 1872. The 4th Marquess of Hertford was arguably the most significant collector, but his father, the 3rd Marquess and his illegitimate son and heir, Sir Richard Wallace, made distinctive and extensive contributions. 

The Wallace Collection

The museum is known for its magnificent French 18th-century paintings, such as Fragonard’s The Swing, furniture, porcelain and sculpture, which are unrivalled in quantity and quality. In 1897, the collection was bequeathed to the British nation in Sir Richard’s honour by his widow, Lady Wallace. Her final wish was that it should be kept together, unmixed with any other Wallace Collection objects.

Hertford House opened to the public as a museum in 1900. Today, it uniquely represents the personal tastes of one family and their generous gift to the nation.
