Getting to Know Wallace

By Linda Tancs

If you were asked to name London’s best museums, what would be on your list?  The British Museum?  V&A?  Tate?  National Gallery?  Chances are, you wouldn’t think of The Wallace Collection.  Featuring the collections of the first four Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, the son of the 4th Marquess, this national museum boasting 25 galleries is a real gem located in Hertford House, a London townhouse.   Its most prominent exhibits include paintings by Titian, Rembrandt, Hals and Velázquez and eighteenth-century French paintings, porcelain, furniture and gold boxes.   But don’t stop there.  Be sure to view the stunning array of Limoges enamels and striking arms and armor.  Beat the crowds and visit on New Year’s Day.
