[The Queen inspecting wounded Coldstream Guardsmen in the Hall of Buckingham Palace, 22 February 1855.]
[The Queen inspecting wounded Coldstream Guardsmen in the Hall of Buckingham Palace, 22 February 1855.]
[after John Gilbert.]
Vincent Brooks [n.d., 1903].
Rare chromolithograph. Printed area 550 x 905mm (21¾ x 25¾"). Paper toned, wear to edges.
A scene in the Marble Hall of Buckingham Palace, with the Royal Family receiving 26 Coldstream Guards who had been wounded fighting in the Crimean War. Sir John Gilbert RA (1817-97) sketched this scene from a verbal description, to create a wood engraving for the Illustrated London News for 10th March 1855. He then enlarged the scene for a watercolour, using photographs of the soldiers for accuracy. When it was exhibited at the Old Watercolour Society exhibition in 1856, it caused a sensation, and was purchased for the Royal Collection, probably by Edward, Prince of Wales. This very large chromolithographic copy of the watercolour is still less than half the size of the painting. In 2019 Queen Elizabeth II was photographed examining the painting when it was included in the exhibition to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria, part of the Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace.
See the Royal Collection Trust RCIN 451958 for the watercolour.
