This lecture will examine Victorian life as reflected in the art of the time, covering a wide range of Victorian experience including, for example, the tragedy of the millions who were forced to emigrate from these islands during the nineteenth century because of economic circumstances, the thrill the Victorians experienced when using the omnibus or the railway, or visiting the Derby, and the ambiguous attitude to women.
