|The most recent official portrait of Queen Elizabeth II of England,
painted by Australian-born artist Ralph Heimans.
|I chose both formal and informal poses in which the various
artists were able to "capture" the queen while maintaining her
|From a sweetly beautiful little princess to a regal, dowager, monarch--
sixty years in just eight paintings.
|What do you think? Assuming she had a good lawyer, could
the queen win a case on the grounds of visual slander?
|Not the stuff to make an artist a household word, but sufficient
to get you invited back to the palace to see the next unveiling.
|I wonder if the queen ever posed for Andy Warhol in 1985.
|Royal Visit, 1953, Jack Wood
