The Queen – art and image

Paul Moorhouse, curator, 20th century, National Portrait Gallery

Date/Time: 19th April 2012

To mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, the National Portrait Gallery staged a major exhibition, The Queen: Art and Image, which brought together some of the most remarkable and resonant images of Elizabeth II made in the last sixty years. In this illustrated lecture, Paul Moorhouse, twentieth century curator at the National Portrait Gallery and the curator of The Queen: Art and Image, explored the development of the Queen’s image during the course of her reign. Since her accession in 1952, the Queen has been exposed to relentless visual scrutiny.
