The Wallace Collection in London is a collection of French paintings, furniture and porcelain art from the 18th century. The collection is on display in 25 galleries and is open to the public. Entrance is free. It is probably best know for paintings by Titian, Rembrandt, Hals (The Laughing Cavalier) and Velázquez, but the entire collection is probably the best of French art, furniture and porcelain anywhere on earth outside France.
The Wallace Collection was began as the private collection by the first four Marquesses of Hertford. The fourth Marquees was Sir Richard Wallace, and on his death his widow donated the entire collection to the nation in 1897. The collection is on display in Hertford House, the former London family home, and is one of London's free tourist attractions.
