A touring exhibition of Irish portraits visits London.

In 1970 the National Portrait Gallery in London was the venue for the 'Irish Portraits Exhibition 1660-1860'. The exhibition visited London from 30 October 1969 to the 4 January 1970, having previously been housed at the National Gallery of Ireland and then moving on to the Ulster Museum in Belfast.

A full catalogue of this exhibition was published by Anne Crookshank and Desmond Fitzgerald, the Knight of Glin, in 1969 through the Paul Mellon Foundation for British Art.

This episode of 'Anthology' was broadcast on 16 March 1970.
