Watercolours of the Great Exhibition
Many of the objects in the illustrations can be identified in the four-volume catalogue of the exhibition. Copies of this can be accessed via the National Art Library.
The watercolours are recent acquisitions purchased with the assistance of The Art Fund, the Contributing Members of the Friends of the V&A and the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851. They were on display until 14th January 2008 and are now available to view via the Prints & Drawings Study Room. The colour lithographs are also available to view via the Prints & Drawings Study Room and the monochrome lithographs are available to view via the National Art Library.
