Lecture: Creating the V&A
November 6, 2019, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Julius Bryant, Keeper of Word and Image at the Victoria and Albert Museum, has researched a new history of the V&A’s collections that reveals the personal contribution of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. His talk, along with an accompanying book Creating the V&A, will explore how the young royal couple played key roles as public supporters and as large-scale lenders, before the museum grew its own collections.
Creating the V&A is published as a contribution to the celebrations marking the bicentenary of the birth of both Victoria and Albert in 2019. It was made possible by the support of the AFV&A through the generosity of the Dr. Lee MacCormick Edwards Charitable Foundation.
