The Tudors: Passion, Power and Politics will open at the Walker Art Gallery on 21 May 2022, featuring around one hundred objects. This includes almost seventy works from the National Portrait Gallery, a selection of additional loans, and paintings from the Walker Art Gallery’s collection.
The exhibition presents the five Tudor monarchs, Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I, some of the most familiar figures from English history and instantly recognisable in the portraits that have preserved their likenesses for five hundred years. The dynasty’s reign over sixteenth-century England, from 1485 to 1603, encompassed the tumultuous years of the Reformation; a literary renaissance; conflict with Scotland, France and Spain; conquest and colonisation in Ireland and America; and the expansion of England’s global reach through piracy and trade. This major exhibition at the Walker will explore the Tudors from a range of perspectives. It will spotlight some historically underrepresented aspects of the period, including Black Tudor history and LGBTQ+ history
A relaxed view ticket is intended for visitors with their friends and family, who may benefit from a quieter environment, including (but not limited to) those with autistic spectrum conditions, anxiety, additional needs or learning disabilities.
