George IV's taste in interiors may have tended to the opulent and exotic, but he enjoyed hanging Dutch scenes of everyday life on his walls, and he could afford to buy the best.

This travelling exhibition of the Dutch landscapes collected by him and other members of the royal family includes outstanding examples by Jacob van Ruisdael, Aelbert Cuyp and Jan van der Heyden.
