The Wallace Collection was left to the nation by Lady Wallace in 1897. Her will stipulated that it must ‘be kept together unmixed with other works of art’.

It displays the art collections collated by the first four Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, and then bequeathed by Lady Wallace.

Sophie, who was born in London, attended Parsons, the New School.
