Launceston Town Hall
Launceston Town Hall

The paintings in the Town Council's collection are hung in The Town Hall in Launceston, a fine Victorian building dating from 1881. In the main, the paintings commemorate former Mayors of Launceston and other local dignitaries. Two paintings of particular note are a copy of van Dyck's equestian portrait of Charles I, which hangs in the Guildhall, and a portrait of the second Duke of Northumberland by Thomas Lawrence, which hangs in the Town Hall. The Duke was a generous benefactor to the town, when it was run as a 'pocket borough' in the nineteenth century. The painting of Launceston Castle by William Maurice Colwill is on display in the Market Arcade.
