Description

This publication explores the artistic lives of the young Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, from the Queens accession in 1837 to Prince Alberts death in 1861. These are the years when Buckingham Palace was described as the headquarters of taste, when royal patronage was still the key to a successful artistic career, and when Victoria and Albert were passionately involved together in the artistic life of the nation. The book reveals the closeness of the royal couples relationships with artists such as Landseer, Gibson, Marochetti, Winterhalter, Gruner and Triqueti, and depicts the wide range of their artistic interests from old master paintings to sculpture, furniture, finely bound volumes and jewellery. There is also a fascinating discussion of Victoria and Alberts passion for recording views of locations and events through watercolour and photography in their Souvenir Albums, and of their own artistic products, painted, drawn and etched.
