Although the term "Victorian" can bring visions of overly stern morality and rigidity, the Victorian Era was actually one of tremendous growth and creativity in both Europe and America. Widespread prosperity and increased travel to other lands lead to expansion and diversity in art, literature and culture. The vision of elegant Victorian ladies and gentlemen is represented here with works by Henri Boutet, James Tissot, James Whistler, and others.
