Tudor and Jacobean exhibition
A portrait of the Countess of Somerset which will be in the exhibition
A NEW exhibition - On the Nature of Women: Tudor and Jacobean Portraits - runs from March 15 to the end of the year in the Long Gallery, at Montacute House.

It will include several previously unseen portraits of Tudor and Jacobean women loaned to Montacute by the National Portrait Gallery in London, including Frances Howard, Countess of Somerset.

It explores the representation of women from the 1530s to 1620, from courtiers to the gentry.

Monacute houses the National Portrait Gallery's 16th and 17th Century portraits and the exhibition will augment the portrayal of women in the collection.

There will also be family activities, talks and events as part of the exhibition programme.
