Overview

The 60 extraordinary paintings that comprise The Royal Holloway Collection’s touring exhibit illustrate the Victorian belief in art as the ultimate civilizing influence. Art was seen as a teaching tool with visual beauty as its medium, and Thomas Holloway sought out only the best examples, regardless of cost, to enhance the women’s college he founded in 1879. Included in this lavishly illustrated exhibition catalog are scenes of contemporary life, historical events, landscapes, animal studies, and marine subjects.
