Today is the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth! The monarch reigned for more than 60 years – only surpassed by our current Queen Elizabeth. Fun fact now that it is #weddingseason: Queen Victoria started the tradition of wearing white when she donned a white satin and lace gown for her wedding to Prince Albert. #onthisday #happybirthday #royals #queenvictoria #victoria

Happy birthday to Thomas Gainsborough, born #onthisday in 1727! Gainsborough is cherished as one of the most important English portraitists of the 18th century, along with his rival Joshua Reynolds. Though known for his portraits, Gainsborough preferred painting landscapes. Image: Mr & Mrs Andrews (1750) #gainsborough #thomasgainsborough #portait #18thcentury #hbd

Lovely vivid colours in this large 18th century Aubusson tapestry on LAPADA.org from @boccara_gallery The tapestry, made from a design by Francois Boucher, features children catching birds. In the 1700’s, small birds played an important symbolic role in courtship ritual: the gift of a caged bird from a man to a woman signified her capture of his heart 🐥 #18thcentury #boucher “francoisboucher #aubusson #tapestry

We love the vibrant colours of this 19th century Qajar polychrome tile. The tile contains a scene from the Shahnameh, which is an epic poem describing the part mythical and part historical history of the Persian Empire until the Arab conquests in the 7th century. The story has inspired decorative arts, such as this tile. Available on LAPADA.org from wick_antiques_ltd. #Qajar #antiquetile #Shahnameh #persian #decorativearts
