National Portrait Gallery, 

London. Established in 1856 as a repository for portraits of patriotic, historical, and literary importance, the gallery’s collection was founded with the acquisition of the Chandos portrait of Shakespeare in 1856: four more Shakespearian likenesses had been added by 1914.
