A two-volumed catalogue raisonné of Queen Victoria's vast collection of watercolours and drawings, presenting through the work of over 1,000 artists a kaleidoscope of Victorian England.

These works, mainly collected and commissioned by Queen Victoria and members of her family, provide a uniquely detailed record of the Queen's interests and of events, both public and private, during her long reign. Many are by such familiar names as Burne-Jones, Callow, Dore, Haghe, Hayter, Lami, Landseer, Leighton and Winterhalter.

Delia Millar has been working on the nineteenth century drawings and watercolours in the Royal Collection since 1977 and has published extensively on the subject. Her knowledge of the collection and the archival sources relating to Queen Victoria's patronage and collecting activities is unrivalled.
