The Royal Portrait: Image and Impact

Description

This book examines the role portraiture has played in promoting the public and private faces of monarchs from Richard II to Queen Elizabeth II. Bringing together works by artists from Holbein to Freud, it investigates the role the royal portrait has played in fashion and politics across 600 years of official and unofficial image-making. It is the first book to explore the subject from within the Royal Collection, and in her fascinating and highly readable text, Jennifer Scott uses specific works, discussed in detail, as a way to explore the parallels between historic and present day image-making. 200 pages and over 180 colour illustrations.

In the video below, David Starkey, one of Britain's finest historians is joined by Royal Collection curator Jennifer Scott to discuss the fascinating subject of royal portraiture from Holbein to Mario Testino.
