Read in January, 2002

This is a study of the now-forgotten but vital role of Queen Victoria's husband Albert in promoting the arts and influencing their direction. He had studied art history before his marriage and was keen to improve the state of the arts in England. Steegman's study also provides a clear and insightful exploration of the state of the arts in the period prior to Victoria's reign and would be an excellent overview for anyone who needed to be familiar with this era.
