He is the author of Art, Passion and Power: The Story of the Royal Collection, published in 2016. Join Michael as he discusses the Royal Collection, which containing over a million works of art and other historic objects, is the largest private art collection in the world. It covers every aspect of the fine and decorative arts, from paintings by Rembrandt and drawings by Michelangelo to fabulous jewels and Fabergé eggs. As Michael Hall will explain, the collection has been shaped by the enthusiasms, whims and obsessions of the Royal Family for over 500 years.
