Tate Britain’s exhibition Sculpture Victorious celebrates some of the most astonishing and lavish works produced in the groundbreaking Victorian era.
Exploring the techniques and materials developed during this time, the exhibition acknowledges the ingenuity and creativity of the Victorian age.
The exhibition includes many extraordinary objects, from marble, limewood and ceramic sculpture shown at the Great Exhibitions, to exquisite jewellery and silverwork, and ornate carvings. Works from the exhibition touch on various aspects of Victorian life, exploring domestic politics, the reach of the empire, and the impact of the scientific and industrial age.
