1. The Artist's Perfect Painting

It's 1735 and Queen Caroline has asked an unknown German artist, Anton Wolf, to create the perfect painting of the royal court for her husband King George II. Poor Anton has no idea where to start! He needs your help to explore the King’s State apartments, learn about the Georgian court and discover the King and Queen’s favourite things so he can paint the perfect picture.
