Prince Albert, the Prince Consort, is one of my favorite personalities in British history. His impact on 19th and 2oth century Britain is immeasurable. When he married Queen Victoria, the Royal Household changed and his vitality reached in every direction: art, enamel, education, environment, manufacturing, trade, politics, MUSIC, fresco, architecture, dance, style, hunting, morals, religion and philosophy, poetry, jewelry, porcelain, trains and ships, on and on. This was a “renaissance” man who was alive to his own detriment. He loved his life in England, but he never forgot his Coburg ties. This exhibition is incredibly important. I will be in England soon, and I will find my way to Coburg, Germany, Prince Albert’s German home. FABULOUS.
