Museum of the Order of St John
Museum of the Order of St John

The paintings collection of the Museum of the Order of St John is extremely diverse, covering many different aspects of the history of the Order, from its foundations in the eleventh century through to its role today with St John Ambulance and the St John Eye Hospital in Jerusalem. The collection was started in the nineteenth century when St John’s Gate, the home of the museum, was acquired by the Order of St John. Many prominent members of this Royal Order of Chivalry have donated significant works, and the Museum continues to acquire objects and paintings that relate to the history of St John. Spanning a period of more than nine hundred years, the history of the Order is reflected in the subject matter of the paintings. Notable works include the Weston Triptych, a fifteenth-century Flemish altarpiece by the school of Rogier van der Weyden, and a view of the St John Eye Hospital in Jerusalem, by David Bomberg.
