Today marks the opening of The Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery’s exhibition West Country to World’s End: the South West in the Tudor Age.
Exhibiting until March 2, 2014, this landmark exhibition explores the West Country in the age of the Tudors. Comprising loans from the Bodleian Library, British Library, British Museum, National Portrait Gallery, National Trust, Royal Collection, Royal Museums Greenwich, Victoria & Albert Museum and private lenders, it will present a compelling account of the remarkable contributions of individuals from the South West from 1540 to 1620.
As an accompaniment to this exhibition, Paul Holberton Publishing has released a book also called West Country to World’s End: The South West in the Tudor Age. This book draws together paintings, artifacts and documents from galleries, museums, and record offices to tell the story of the South West and its people set against the backdrop of one of the most evocative periods in British history.
