Podcast: Sir Thomas Lawrence and the Waterloo Chamber

In this podcast Surveyor of The Queen's Pictures, Desmond Shawe-Taylor, explores the dazzling portraits painted by Sir Thomas Lawrence, which dominate the magnificent Waterloo Chamber at Windsor Castle. Lawrence brilliantly captured the celebrated figures from Church and State who brought about the overthrow of Napoleon. The portraits capture a turning point in European history, but was this the new era of peace and co-operation they promised.
