In this episode of The Tudor History & Travel Show, Sarah talks to Linda Collins and Siobhan Clarke about their new book, King & Collector: Henry VIII and the Art of Kingship, which is due to be released in the UK on 15th April, 2021.
A centre of glamourous excess, Henry adorned his court with tapestries and paintings that glorified him and his realm. King & Collector: Henry VIII and the Art of Kingship guides us through Henry’s collection of artworks and what they reveal about him and his reign in a unique story of art, power, and propaganda in Tudor England.
Described as ‘beautifully written and impeccably researched’, King & Collector: Henry VIII and the Art of Kingship can be pre-ordered online – available from Amazon at the links below, and other online retailers:
