Hand painted photograph showing Queen Victoria (1819-1901) and Prince Albert (1819-61) after a drawing room, wearing formal court dress.
A 'Drawing Room' was a formal court function at which ladies were 'presented at Court' (ie debutantes), as opposed to levees, when gentlemen were presented to the Sovereign. During the reign of Queen Victoria, Drawing Rooms took place in the afternoon and Levees in the morning.
