The Wallace Collection Great Gallery Re-opening
The Great Gallery, described as "the greatest picture gallery in Europe" by the late art historian and broadcaster Kenneth Clark, will reopen to the public on 19 September.
For the last two years the Great Gallery has been closed for extensive refurbishment, with restoration completed it is now one of the finest entertaining space in London, providing a breath-taking environment for corporate and private entertainment. The Gallery features rich red wall silk, a raised ceiling, beautiful decoration – from gilded coving to parquet flooring – and a sophisticated new lighting scheme. This in addition to one of the finest collections of old-master paintings from Titan to Velasquez and Rubens to Van Dyk. And of course Frans Hals Laughing Cavalier.
Corporate Members can hire the Great Gallery from the start of September for receptions of up to 300 and dinners for of up to 120. Nowhere in London can you entertain in such opulence and experience so many masterpieces in one incredible space.
