Picture the City

Journey through London in our digital exhibition.

Come and explore this city…

London is a city of layers. Even the most modern parts of the city can tell us stories from the past.

This digital exhibition brings together eight landscape paintings from our collection, showing us the beautiful scenery historic London has to offer. These paintings reveal the changing economic landscapes that built this city, as well as the people who have lived, worked and played here.

You’ll go all over London – from leafy Hampstead Heath to the industrial landscape of the Docklands – and meet a variety of people on your journey.
