From Dorothy Wilding’s hand-coloured photograph of the newly crowned Elizabeth II in 1952, to Hew Locke’s portrayal of the Queen as Medusa (2008), this volume traces the evolution of representations of the Queen over 60 years and reflects on what these images tell us of the changing nature of regal portraiture, perceptions of monarchy and the monarch herself. The portraits, which include works by Cecil Beaton, Andy Warhol and Chris Levine, are followed by a chronology of the Queen’s reign.
