One of The Southwold Arts Society Season of Lectures: Queen Victoria and Prince Albert: Patrons of the Arts and Art Collectors. Victoria and Albert, both born in 1819, were enthusiastic patrons of the arts throughout their marriage and viewed these roles as being part of the public duties of monarchy. Buckingham Palace was known as ‘the headquarters of taste’. This talk also challenges the image of Victoria as a melancholy widow and reveals her as a passionate and open-minded young woman. Speaker: Oliver Everett.
