Prince Albert (1819-61)

Signed and dated 1842

RCIN 401412

Commissioned as a pair with no. 12, it is perhaps unsurprising that this early portrait was one of Queen Victoria’s three favourite pictures of her husband, given the artist’s romantic treatment of the subject. Prince Albert is depicted in officer’s undress uniform, standing in a noble pose set against stormy skies, in a manner evocative of Ingres.

Commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1842

No. 13
