"Portrait of the Artist" will focus on self-portraits and images of artists from within the Royal Collection, and include over 150 works by the likes of Rembrandt, Rubens, Lucian Freud and Hockney. It will also include the most reliable surviving likeness of Leonardo da Vinci by his student.

The exhibition will examine a range of themes within the paintings, like those which were intended to showcase the artist's talents, and those which aimed to promote symbolism and the relationship between the artist and his patron, including those monarchs who commissioned, collected and displayed the finished works.
