Asensational diamond and pearl Cartier tiara rescued during the 1915 sinking of RMS Lusitania, an exquisite Rococo carved-wood panel found adrift in the aftermath of 1912’s Titanic disaster, and a stylish set of personalised Maison Goyard luggage owned by the Duke of Windsor, circa 1940s, are just a few highlights of the new exhibition Ocean Liners: Speed and Style, which runs at the Victoria and Albert Museum until June 17.
The first exhibition to consider the cultural impact of cruise and ocean liners from the mid-19th to the late-20th century, the show pays special attention to the glamorous‘golden age’ of voyages that lasted from the 1890s to the 1940s. “The great age of ocean liners has long passed,” says Ghislaine Wood, co-curator of Ocean Liners, “but no form of transport has been so romantic or so remarkable.” |
