Poole – Victoria & Albert: Our Lives in Watercolour


A major exhibition of watercolours, marking the bicentenary of the births of both Prince Albert and Queen Victoria, opens on Saturday 26 October at Poole Museum. Poole Museum will be the only venue to host this exhibition in the South of the UK.

Victoria & Albert: Our Lives in Watercolour showcases nearly 70 works loaned by Her Majesty The Queen from the Royal Collection. The exhibition explores the private and public lives of the couple throughout their marriage. Both Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were avid patrons and practitioners of watercolour painting.

Visitors will have the opportunity to view many watercolours depicting the pomp and spectacle of royalty, travel abroad as well as scenes from the private life of the couple. In addition, works by Queen Victoria herself will be on display, showcasing her talent and passion using watercolours.

Poole Museum will host a series of events and activities throughout the exhibition, suitable for all ages including a children’s Make and Take craft activity and a talk from the curator of the exhibition, Carly Collier, Assistant Curator of Prints and Drawings, Royal Collection Trust. Programming also includes a Dementia-friendly exhibition tour.
