19th century London masterpiece reimagined

An immersive installation by contemporary artist Darren Waterston, presenting a detailed reimagining of James Abbott McNeill Whistler’s famed Peacock Room, has been brought to the UK for the first time. 

The original was created in the late 1800s in a townhouse in Kensington - but the work was rejected by the property's owner - leading to a bitter feud.

Called 'Filthy Lucre' - the installation is at the V&A from 25th January to 3rd May.
