Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, also called Victoria, was a talented artist. In 1878 she decided to copy this early masterpiece by Rembrandt, known as The Artist’s Mother. Pleased with the result, she presented the painting to her mother, who hung it in Windsor Castle where Rembrandt’s original was also located.
