Hail, Britannia! Six Centuries of British Art from the Berger Collection is a rich survey of British art punctuated by masterworks from every period in British history.  The exhibition will feature fifty paintings from the medieval period to the twenty-first century by luminaries such as Hans Holbein the Younger, Sir Anthony van Dyck, Thomas Gainsborough, Sir Thomas Lawrence, John Constable, Angelica Kauffman, and George Stubbs. The Berger Collection, a privately-owned collection of British art on long-term loan to the Denver Art Museum, is one of the most impressive collections of British art in America. This exhibition provides audiences the rare opportunity to view portraits, landscapes, sporting subjects, history paintings, and more by Britain’s great masters within a vast chronological range.
