The Queen: Art and Image
Lecture | The Society of Antiquaries of London
Tuesday 18 October 2011 - 14:30 until 15:30
He considers the role of formal painted portraits, studio photographs, the mass media and the responses of contemporary artists in influencing the way the Queen has been perceived.
He argues that such images are much more than a fascinating biographical record, and that they provide vital insights into radical changes in social attitudes and artistic values.
