These included Old Master paintings, sculpture, furniture, jewellery and fine bindings. In short, Victoria and Albert were as passionate about art as they were about each other. They viewed their roles as patrons of the arts as being part of the public duties of the monarchy. Buckingham Palace was known as 'the headquarters of taste'. They also made important changes at Windsor Castle and added three other distinctive royal residences, Balmoral Castle, Osborne House and Sandringham House. They played a pivotal role with the ground-breaking Great Exhibition of 1851, were important patrons of early photography and also produced their own art -paintings, drawings and etchings.Judy Rudoe lecture - last chance to book your placeReaders are advised that as this issue of the Reviewwent to press there were still some tickets left for NADFAS-accredited lecturer JudyRudoe's lecture at the British Museum (seespring Review, page 9).
