The Family of Queen Victoria in 1887

Signed and dated 1887

RCIN 400500

Queen Victoria admired Tuxen’s painting of the Family of Christian IX and so commissioned a family group from him to mark her Golden Jubilee. Tuxen creates a homogenous composition, giving a liveliness and naturalness in his sitters, and a powerful dynastic image for his patron. The setting is the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle.

Commissioned by Queen Victoria.
