Victorian Sentimentality

Panel discussion:  The curators (Nicola Bown, Vicky Mills, Alison Smith) of a new display opening at Tate Britain this week talk about the display which aims to shed new light on this much misunderstood and maligned topic. Victorian art is often criticised for being sentimental, but what does this mean? And is sentimentality always a bad thing?
