Drawn by George Housman Thomas (1824-1868) in July of 1862, this unfinished watercolor painting was meant to show the marriage of Princess Alice, daughter of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, in the dining room of Osborne House.

I'm not sure why it isn't finished, but, what has been is quite lovely.
