When attitudes towards children changed shocased in Victorian art

The impact Queen Victoria had on the way society viewed children - is at the heart of a new art exhibition.

The Monarch's nine children, often in the public eye, helped to set family values, and made others consider the plight of those put to work in factories and mines.

This change in attitudes was captured in paintings - and the UK's largest collection of works featuring children from the time, is now set to go on show in London.

Seen & Heard: Victorian Children in the Frame is at the Guildhall Art Gallery until April.
