    Elizabethan Treasures: Miniatures by Hilliard and Oliver is an exhibition shown at the National Portrait Gallery, London till 19 May 2019.

    Described as ‘a thing apart from all other painting or drawing’, the portrait miniatures of the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods are some of the greatest works of art to be produced in the British Isles. Hilliard and Oliver were compared by their contemporaries to Michelangelo and Raphael, and gained international fame and admiration. This is the first major UK exhibition of these miniatures for a generation.

    The Hawkland typeface is used for all the exhibition graphics.

    1. Hawkland pairs really nicely with the font used for “National Portrait Gallery.” Good choice.
