An extraordinary exhibition of portraits depicting the Royal House of Stuart in exile. This iconic exhibition will feature paintings never before displayed together in Scotland and some which have never before been exhibited. The recently rediscovered portrait of a 16-year-old Bonnie Prince Charlie, by renowned Venetian artist Rosalba Carriera is showcased at this event.

The exhibition includes icon paintings of four generations of the Royal House of Stuart, including James VIII (the Old Pretender) and his wife Princess Clementina Sobieska, through to Prince Charles Edward Stuart, (Bonnie Prince Charlie), and his daughter, Charlotte the Duchess of Albany. The series concludes with Charlotte's daughter Princess Marie Victorie de Rohan. These paintings illustrate the deposed Royal Stuart dynasty.
