Museum of Fine Arts, Houston presents "Decorative Arts in the Age of Victoria" opening day
"Decorative Arts in the Age of Victoria" presents objects illustrating the dual drives of the British to both historicize and modernize their world. During the reign of Queen Victoria (1837–1901), art and design reflected a desire to learn from European artistic tradition, adapting historic decorative techniques to modern manufacturing processes.
Objects on view include porcelain, glass, jewelry, miniatures, wallpaper, and furniture, and more.
Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display through July 30.
