29 JUNE–15 SEPTEMBER
VICTORIA & ALBERT: OUR LIVES IN WATERCOLOUR
Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle
Throughout their marriage, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were enthusiastic patrons (and practitioners) of the art of watercolour painting. This touring exhibition – including many works that will be displayed for the first time – marks the bicentenary of both of their births with a collection of colourful, dynamic watercolours capturing 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.
