Works

Queen Elizabeth II (2001) - Lucian Freud

First, the facts. It seems that the 75 year old Queen Elizabeth II (1926-20??) commissioned Lucian Freud to paint an official royal portrait and she began sitting for it in May 2000. Freud finished it in early December 2001, and unveiled it over the holidays. It will hang in the Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace beginning May 2002 for the exhibition "Royal Treasures: A Golden Jubilee Celebration". It will then be placed in the Royal Collection. It may be the last portrait of Queen Elizabeth, joining dozens of others painted over her lifetime. --In Defense of The Grotesque Old Woman: Lucian Freud's Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by D.
