Edwardian Opulence was the first survey in more than a generation of the full extent, breadth and depth of the visual arts in Britain during the reign of King Edward VII (1901-1910). The exhibition explored the pan-imperial, international and transatlantic character of the British art in that period and considered the impact of new technologies on painting, sculpture, photography and the decorative arts. Many of the objects in the exhibition were chosen to reveal the full and often startling magnificence of elite consumption during that turbulent decade. Philip de László's portrait of The Honourable Victoria 'Vita' Sackville-West (1910) was included.
