Tours of the V&A VICTORIAN GALLERIES and the ALBERT MEMORIAL
with Barbara Askew

Thursday 05 September 2019

The Victorian Galleries at the V&A Museum showcase the finest examples of Victorian decorative art from 19th Century Britain. The impact of technological innovation, the Great Exhibition, the Battle of the Styles, the Gothic Revival, A.N.W. Pugin, William Burges, the cult of domesticity, the Arts and Crafts Movement, William Morris, Christopher Dresser and Charles Rennie Macintosh are all included in the tour.

The Albert Memorial is as remarkable as the man it commemorates. George Gilbert Scott designed it not only to celebrate the Prince Consort’s life, but also to explain the ideals and aspirations of the whole Victorian Age. The memorial’s unique combination of architecture, sculpture and craftsmanship makes it one of the masterpieces of the Gothic Revival and one of Europe’s greatest public monuments.
