About

The world-famous late 16th century portrait of Richard III will go on display at the Yorkshire Museum as part of a new display, in summer 2021. The loan to the Yorkshire Museum is part of the National Portrait Gallery’s nation-wide COMING HOME project, which sees the Gallery sending portraits of iconic individuals to places they are closely associated with.

The painting, which has become synonymous with the depiction of Richard III, will form the centrepiece of the new display, which includes the Yorkshire Museum’s outstanding collections associated with the King. Objects such as the magnificent Middleham Jewel, The Ryther Hoard and the Stillingfleet Boar Badge worn by one of his supporters, will be on display.
