Portland Collection

Book / Interpretation / Exhibition

Welbeck’s historic Portland Collection of fine and decorative art has been amassed over the centuries by the Dukes of Portland and their families. Opened in May 2016, The Portland Gallery houses this superb collection of paintings, furniture, jewels and manuscripts. Lawn were invited to produce the definitive publication on the Collection as well as design interpretation and signage throughout the new gallery. The gallery boasts a dedicated ‘Octagon’ of cases displaying a selection of Welbecks portrait miniatures – one of the largest collections of miniatures in public hands. This first selection, of an ever changing display, has been curated by Sir Peter Blake.
