The Wallace Collection consists of historical pieces (paintings, jewelery, porcelain, furniture, armor and coins) from the private collection of Richard Wallace. The largest part of the collection is French 18th-century art with, among other things, a state portrait of Louis XV and a canvas by Jean-Honoré Fragonard. In addition, the collection has 26 canvases by Jean-Baptiste Greuze, thirty by François Boucher, and ten by Jean-Antoine Watteau; only the Louvre does better with fourteen canvases. Rembrandt, Willem van Mieris, Frans Hals and other masters such as Diego Velázquez also completes the collection.
