The First of May 1851 by Franz Xaver Winterhalter. The Duke of Wellington presents a gift to Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and little Prince Arthur (the Duke was Arthur’s godfather). Prince Arthur holds a Lily of the valley which is a traditional 1st of May gift said to bring luck. The painting was commissioned by Queen Victoria and is holding a threefold significance: Prince Arthur’s 1st birthday; the Duke of Wellington’s 82nd birthday; and the opening day of the Great Exhibition.
