The Oval Room of The Wallace Collection, LondonOne of my favorite spaces in the Wallace Collection was the oval room as seen here. It’s lovely light blue silk tapestries were emphasized by some of my all time favorite paintings which were mounted on top. This room houses the precious paintings The Swing and Madame Pompadour by the superstar Jean-Honoré Fragonard.

  1. I have heard about the Wallace Collection but you have now given me a flavour of it. A number of years ago, whilst doing some research on one of his friends, I read up a bit on Dougal MacColl, called Suthie by his friends, who was at one time in charge of the Wallace Collection. A very interesting man, born in Glasgow, and a friend of Alexander Reid, the Scottish art dealer who was friendly with, and for a few months lived with, Vincent and Theo van Gogh. Reid worked beside Theo and was painted by Vincent.
