HMY 'Alberta' Carrying the remains of Queen Victoria
Queen Victoria died at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight on 22 January 1901. Her body was brought across the Solent to Portsmouth on board the Royal Yacht 'Alberta', in preparation for her funeral at Windsor on 6 February, and was taken to London by royal train. Wyllie witnessed the scene from the flagship HMS 'Majestic'. The composition of this drawing relates to the painting Wyllie exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1901, 'The passing of a Great Queen' (Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool), and may be a preparatory study for it.
