ABOUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH

Taken May 1857, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland
(Royal Collections / Public Domain)

"Reigning during the largest expansion of the British Empire, Queen Victoria was granted the title of Empress of India by Parliament vote in 1876. Notably, she was the first British reigning monarch to be photographed after camera technology became increasingly popular, and was first captured on the camera in c.1845. This portrait, commonly attributed to John Jabez Edwin Mayall in 1860, was in fact taken by Leonida Caldesi in 1857."

– Jordan J. Lloyd

Royal Collections Description

"In April 1857, Caldesi was invited to Buckingham Palace to photograph the royal children. This was the first of several successful commissions in 1857, which included a visit to Osborne House in May with his business partner Mattia Montecchi. On 26 May, Caldesi took the well known group portrait of the royal family on the terrace at Osborne, including all nine of Queen Victoria's children. Caldesi fulfilled further royal commissions over the next few years, including portraits of the young Princess Beatrice in 1859."
