The Painted Hall is decorated with stunning paintings by James Thornhill, and is part of the King William Court. This was planned to be the hospital's dining hall. Wren submitted the designs in 1698 and the roof and the dome above were in place five years later. Thornhill's decoration, by contrast, took 19 years to complete. In 1824 the hall became the 'National Gallery of Naval Art' and remained so until 1930s, when its contents were transferred to the newly created National Maritime Museum. Between 1939 and 1998 the Painted Hall was again used as a dining room. The allegorical theme of the huge and exuberant Lower Hall ceiling is the triumph of Peace and Liberty over Tyrany, and pays due tribute to William and Mary and British maritime power.
