To coincide with the exhibition Victoria and Albert: Our Lives in Watercolour, explore this range inspired by the art of watercolour painting. Throughout their marriage, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert formed a wonderful collection of thousands of watercolours, many illustrating scenes of their public and private lives, and often spent happy evening together organising acquisitions into albums.
This magnet depicts The Picture Gallery, Buckingham Palace in 1873 by Hills and Saunders.
