The theme

Victorian Era (1837 – 1901)

Historic time marked by the reign of Queen Victoria from 20 June 1837 until her death on 22 January 1901, started in Great Britain and then extended to the rest of the world.

This period marked the beginning of the XX Century, where it is depicted a lifestyle heavily influenced by industrialization, a consequence of the invent of steam machines.

Etiquette and well manners, aristocracy and high sophistication were recurrent themes during this period, which was clearly shown in the clothes, style and general personal appearance.   

Some of the authors, artists and works that clearly reflect this historic era include:  Jules Verne, Arthur Conan Doyle and Alphonse Mucha, literary pieces like "Sherlock Holmes", "Around the World in Eighty Days" and "Journey to the Center of the Earth" among many others.
