THE PRINCE CONSORT AND THE GREAT EXHIBITION
Distinguished Amateurs in the Graphic Arts was a series of articles published by Winsor & Newton in the 1950s. Now housed in our archives, this series is an exciting way to discover famous figures with surprising artistic talents. Last week we learnt about Queen Victoria, a woman of considerable abilities who favoured Winsor & Newton materials above all others. It seems fitting this week, that we should offer you a piece on her husband, the Prince Consort.
Such an accolade came only after years of trial and research in order to perfect each single product. Much has changed over the years, but that same diligence and care is still practised today. We search tirelessly for the best pigments and raw materials and we still craft our paints in the same unwavering pursuit of perfection.
