The exhibition runs until June 27 and the 16 works were selected by Beckham from the upcoming Sotheby’s Old Master evening sale on July 4.

Beckham said it was a visit to the Frick Collection in New York last year that introduced her to the world of Old Masters and started her “fascination”.

Chloe Stead, Sotheby’s Old Master specialist, said: “I hope, that in presenting Victoria’s selection of portraits by the Old Masters in this wonderfully unexpected, modern and sleek space we will be able to participate in some small way in the dialogue surrounding the magic of painted portraiture, and its enduring appeal, even in our modern age of selfie-overload.”

Here are five of the 16 selected paintings that are hanging in her fashion store.
