The Queen: Portraits of a MonarchAndy Warhol's screenprint portraits of Her Majesty, recently acquired for the Royal Collection, are displayed for the first time in The Queen: Portraits of a Monarch at Windsor Castle. Queen Elizabeth II is one of the most depicted women in the world and the exhibition presents a selection of official, commissioned and formal portraits of The Queen, brought together from a number of royal residences. As well as the 1985 works by Warhol, part of his Reigning Queens portfolio - which are sprinkled with crushed glass which sparkle like diamonds - there are paintings by well known artists for whom she has sat including Cecil Beaton, Pietro Annigoni and Lucian Freud. Some of the works are accompanied by reflections from the artists who give a personal insight into the challenge of portraying such a universally renowned face.
