VICTORIA AND ALBERT: OUR LIVES IN WATERCOLOUR 
WOLVERHAMPTON ART GALLERY 
Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were enthusiastic patrons and practitioners of the art of watercolour painting. They built a collection of thousands of watercolours, many illustrating scenes of their public and private lives. They often spent happy evenings together organising their acquisitions into albums. This touring exhibition from the Royal Collection (including many works being displayed for the first time) marks the bicentenary of the births of both Victoria and Albert. These colourful watercolours capture the pomp and spectacle of the British Court, foreign travel, diplomacy, the exploration and shaping of a modern nation and the close-knit family at the heart of it all. 
 
A talk and tour of the exhibition with Oliver McCall – Art Gallery curator Time: 11.30-12.30 approx Cost: £4pp £5 for non-members.
