Prince of Wales at Christchurch Art Gallery
We would have loved to be able to show you around, Your Royal Highness, to have wished you a Happy Birthday for Wednesday, perhaps even shown you one or two of our treasures...
William Nicholson H.R.H. The Prince Of Wales. Lithograph, 1899.
Collection of Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu, purchased 1972
But I'm afraid we can't, Sir, because we're a little bit closed. You might have to make do with our Collections Online. We do have one or two of your ancestors here, actually – a couple of lithographs by William Nicholson (1872-1949) are particularly good. You might already know these - they're part of a series – take a look next time that you pop into the Tate.
