Victoria & Albert: Our Lives in Watercolour

26 October 2019 – 5 January 2020

V&A-Website-Banner-FINAL.jpg


Throughout their marriage, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were enthusiastic patrons (and practitioners) of the art of watercolour painting. They formed a collection of thousands of watercolours, many illustrating scenes of their public and private lives, and often spent happy evenings together organising their acquisitions into albums.

This touring exhibition – including many works being displayed for the first time – marks the bicentenary of the births of both Victoria and Albert. These colourful, dynamic watercolours, loaned by Her Majesty The Queen from the Royal Collection, capture the pomp and spectacle of the British court, foreign travel and diplomacy, the exploration and shaping of a modern nation and, importantly, the close-knit family at the heart of it all.
