Crowe was one of the artists asked to contribute designs for mosaics to decorate the new South Kensington Museum. He produced cartoons in oil, which now hang in the Lecture Theatre of the V&A. The mosaics, which were put together by students of the National Art Training Schools, originally decorated the niches in the South Court of the Museum. The Christopher Wren mosaic has been moved to another point in the Museum, opposite Gallery 126, while the William Hogarth mosaic is now in storage.
Images and more information about the cartoons and mosaics are available from the Collections page of the V&A website (search for ‘Eyre Crowe’).
