The collector and military-man General John Guise (1683 – 1765) left his impressive art collection to Christ Church, his former college. Among the almost 2000 Old Master drawings are many with a military topic. Is this is a mere coincidence or do they illustrate the General’s own interest and taste? The exhibition showed over thirty drawings, ranging from a depiction of the war-god Mars by Rubens to whole compositional drawings of battle scenes by the Florentine artist Niccolò Circignani.
