The collection of Royal portraits features paintings, sculptures, and photographs dating from the first monarch of the House of Tudor, Henry VII, to the current Queen Elizabeth II! Since this exhibit is in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery many of these pieces have never been seen outside of England, making this even more special for the MFAH.
