painting of Queen Elizabeth II

A look at how portraits of Queen Elizabeth II have changed over her reign and Kingston's commission of a commemorative work by Arthur Pan

In 1963, Arthur Pan was commissioned to paint a portrait of Elizabeth II, in Full Regalia on 7 April 1964, Granting the Charter to the Newly Created London Borough of Kingston upon Thames. Taking this work as a starting point, join us for a public lecture that will explore how the royal portraiture of Queen Elizabeth II has evolved from the 1950s until her Platinum Jubilee.

Dr Ruth Brimacombe is the Learning and Engagement Officer at Kingston Museum and a British portrait specialist, who previously worked at the National Portrait Gallery, London as Collections Curator 19th Century.
