"Downton Abbey" comes to the Yale Center for British Art

The Edwardian era — as highlighted in the award-winning PBS series “Downton Abbey” — will be the focus of a new exhibition at the Yale Center for British Art.

Featuring over 170 costumes, paintings, and jewelry, Edwardian Opulence: British Art at the Dawn of the 20th Century will be the first major international exhibition in more than a generation to survey visual and decorative arts in Britain during the reign of King Edward VII (1901-1910).

Among the lenders to Edwardian Opulence are public art museums and private individuals spread over four continents.

These include Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, His Grace the Duke of Devonshire, the Right Hon. Lord Rothschild, the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Musée d’Orsay, and the South African National Gallery in Cape Town.
