To mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the National Portrait Gallery hosts this landmark exhibition that brings together some of the most remarkable and resonant images of Elizabeth II made during her reign.
From formal painted portraits to commissioned photographs and from press images to works by celebrated contemporary artists, the exhibition charts the evolving representation of one of the most portrayed people of all time, and the influence of this imagery on changing perceptions of the monarchy.
Exploring the startling range of artistic creativity that the Queen has inspired, the exhibition also reveals the radical changes in portraiture and profound social developments since the 1950s. Featured photographers and artists include Cecil Beaton, Pietro Annigoni, Andy Warhol, Annie Leibovitz, Lucian Freud, Thomas Struth and Gerhard Richter
