Thornhill's sketches

A Great and Noble Design: Sir James Thornhill’s Painted Hall

  • 13 September — 28 October 2016 *on now

A new exhibition exploring the life of the British decorative artist Sir James Thornhill and his masterpiece – the Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich (painted between 1708 and 1727).

The exhibition explores the story of the commission through numerous preparatory sketches made by the artist, including rarely-seen original drawings.

Three newly-conserved, original sketches by Thornhill for the Painted Hall will be on display in the exhibition, alongside new research undertaken into the paintings in the light of the upcoming conservation work on the Painted Hall's ceiling.

Held at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery in the centre of Greenwich, this free exhibition is an essential visit for anyone interested in the Painted Hall.
