Albert Memorial

The Albert Memorial is a monument in Kensington Gardens, London. It is located directly to the north of the Royal Albert Hall. The monument, which was opened in 1872, commemorates Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria who had died at the young age of 42 in 1861. It was funded by public subscription. The monument is in the Gothic Revival style, and it features a statue of the seated Albert beneath a canopy. The central part of the memorial features the sculptural Frieze of Parnassus which depicts 169 musicians, poets, painters, sculptors, and architects. The four corners feature allegorical sculpture programs: the first program depicts Victorian industrial arts and sciences, while the second set depict Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe.
