28 February–19 May 2019

Exhibition Overview

The Barrel Game

Louis-Léopold Boilly, The Barrel Game, The Ramsbury Manor Foundation.

At the core of Boilly: Scenes of Parisian Life are 18 paintings from a British private collection which have never been displayed or published. Assembled by British property developer and collector Harry Hyams over the course of the last 60 years, these works from The Ramsbury Manor Foundation will introduce National Gallery visitors to an artist who was at the very heart of the Parisian art world throughout the Revolution of 1789, the Terror, the rise and fall of Napoleon, and the restoration of the French monarchy.
