Victoria Beckham reveals her and husband David's unique new skill

They've found a new passion!

Victoria Beckham has revealed she and her husband David are learning about Old Master paintings.

If you don't know, Old Master art is works that were made between the 13th and 18th centuries.

The fashion designer, 44, has revealed she's joined forces with Sotheby's to put a selection of 16 portraits on display inside her London fashion shop.

I'm really enjoying learning about it. It's been quite incredible.

In a new interview with The Daily Telegraph, Victoria said: "David and I loved collecting contemporary art for quite some time, but Old Masters is really something new for me, and something I don't know an enormous amount about.

"I'm really enjoying learning about it. It's been quite incredible."

The mum-of-four went on to call the collaboration with Sotheby's a "dream come true".

Speaking about her and David's decision to learn about it, Victoria continued: "Art is something we're enjoying learning about together, and every piece means something personal to us, so it would be really hard to pick a favourite."

From Friday June 22, Victoria's boutique will host a temporary exhibition of the paintings.

The former Posh Spice took to Instagram recently to speak about her new "passion".

Alongside a snap of herself looking at a painting of Lucas Cranach the Elder, she wrote: "Learning about Old Masters is a new passion, something that I am excited to learn more about!

"Thank you @sothebys for this partnership, helping me to explore this passion further and for allowing me to showcase these works in my store!"

The works by Rubens, Cranach and Larkin will be hung across several floors among Victoria's Pre-Fall collection.

Even though the couple have only just discovered Old Masters art, the pair have been collecting contemporary art for some time.

Victoria's revelation about her new-found passion comes after she opened up about the struggles of juggling work and family life.

Earlier this month, she opened up about how she's trying to be the "best wife" she can to David.

The star praised David, 43, for being a supportive husband during a chat at the Forbes Women's Summit in New York.

She also admitted she can "beat myself up" about juggling work and family.

"Like most women, I beat myself up. I'm trying most importantly to be the best mum that I can. But I'm also trying to be the best wife and the best professional," she said, according to WWD.

"I have to remind myself, when I come home, 'put the phone down.' It's OK to not answer e-mails until the morning.

"Spend quality time with your children and David."
