Overview

This major contribution to studies of the Victorian era explores the period from Queen Victoria's accession in 1837 to Prince Albert's death in 1861. These were the years when Buckingham Palace was known as 'the headquarters of taste', when royal patronage was still an essential part in a successful artistic career, and when the royal couple were passionately involved together in the artistic life of the nation.

Victoria and Albert were enthusiastic patrons of the arts throughout their marriage, commissioning and collecting works from both British and European artists.

This book reveals the closeness of their relationships with particular artists - Landseer, Gibson, Marochetti, Winterhalter, Dyee, Gruner and Triqueti - and in over 450 colour illustrations examines the complete range of their extensive personal collection, from Old Master paintings to sculpture, furniture, jewellery and fine bindings. This book also features their own artistic work, from paintings, drawings and etchings to the souvenir albums lovingly assembled to record and commemorate their family life.
