Elizabeth II, Queen (1926 – 2022)

Magnificent oversized portrait of the queen in her first year

Striking vintage matte-finish approximately 11″ x 14 portrait of Elizabeth wearing her glimmering crown jewels by Dorothy Wilding, affixed to its original 12″ x 16″ mount and framed. Signed boldly on the mount in fountain pen, ‘Elizabeth R, 1953’. A neatly repaired surface scratch towards the left border, otherwise in very fine condition.

This portrait was taken at a sitting in the year of Elizabeth’s accession to the throne in 1952, and has become one of the defining images of the early years of her reign. A stunning item.
