THE SKETCH BOOK OF OF PRINCESS VICTORIA
ROYAL HOUSEHOLD PENCHANT FOR PORTRAITURE
No aesthetics move most of our dullard leaders
The quality of required leadership is indisputable in all ways. Leaders are supposed to be in a position to do things, to be able to rise above others. Emperors of the past were all versed in many professions. They were good at things and they appreciated excellence. The English Royal household was obsessed with Art and Artists. But some of them were painters themselves. Take for instance Princess Victoria, who later became Queen Victoria and ruled all over India. We find her not only interested in collecting Art or even looking at Art, we also find her interested in painting herself. Some of her private sketches from her book were published long ago. It is our pleasure to present a view of the Queen of India which may not be known by many. The statue of Queen Victoria adorned Lahore’s Charing Cross for a long time. Memories of her must be still there out somewhere.
