Pills, pyramids and paintings: Thomas Holloway and his Picture Gallery

Picture Gallery

Royal Holloway’s historic Picture Gallery houses one of the first art collections in Britain intended for a women’s college – bought by an octogenarian philanthropist who made his money selling patent medicines around the world. Join Assistant Curator Imogen Tedbury to explore the hidden histories of Thomas Holloway’s picture collection.

Please meet the speaker outside the Picture Gallery (Victorian corridor entrance).

Admission free, no booking necessary.
