Link to CBC tribute. ¬ I don't know how long the link will be working.

Living in Ohio, we get CBC Windsor on cable. ¬ The Canadian perspective is a refreshing change for CNN and the other U. S. new groups.

A personal tribute from HRH The Prince of Wales to Her Majesty The Queen on her 80th Birthday, 21st April 2006



What a touching tribute from a son to his mother and queen.

From the pictures, HM looks as if she's enjoying every minute of it, and I hope she is!

God Bless Her and Keep Her.

An eightieth birthday is a very special occasion for every family ‚Äď an occasion for celebration, for giving thanks and for looking back. As a child, I can just remember my Great Grandmother, Queen Mary, at eighty;

Of course, the POW can't win. This line is being sniggered at on other sites because he wasn't born when QM turned 80.  :-/

On the ABC chanel last night here in Australia they showed a documentry on this man who recently painted the Queen. He got two sessions to paint her while she was in the room. She seemed such a lovely person, and I don't think I've heard a bad word about her in my short life. Everyone over here loves her as our Queen!

Portrait by Annigonni

At the time this portrait came out, there was controversy about the Queen's expression, a little too haughty.  There was also some talk about a portrait that came out about the same time where a "body double" was used.  Do I have my subjects crossed here?  I haven't always been as interested in this subject as I am now.

In any case, I want to purchase a good print of this portrait and would appreciate your suggestions via private message for a reasonable print vendor.  I was burned once purchasing a print over the internet and need all the help I can get.

Thanks

I think this is a magnificent portrait of Elizabeth and I see no haughtiness of expression at all.  However, every work of art will have its critics.  ::)

I don't think there is anything unusual in using a model or even a mannequin, dressed in the subject's clothes, jewellery etc. for a portrait.  If the portrait subject has limited time to give an artist, they can be used for the less exacting areas of the portrait.

Very true Grace! I think it's a lovely picture I like the similar one he did of Princess Margaret too (now up for auction ::), I hope it stays in the UK, it should be in the Royal Collection more than any where. I'm goint to write to the Queen and request that she purchases it!!)

No haughtiiness here, either.  Very obvious from where the Duke of York gets his easy smile.

Very nice.

Since there will, no doubt, be a lot of articles about the Queen, I would appreciate your keeping an eye out for this picture.  I am fairly sure that I saw it in Life Magazine prior to 1965.  I try to spend a couple hours a month at the library looking for it.  It wasn't a cover picture.  

It may be even earlier than that.

Dear B5218

Ive been searching for you on the net for a bigger version but couldnt find it.
But Ive found some information on the painting and maybe it will help you maybe not because you allready knew. ;)
Its from Getty images and the painting is from january the first 1952 by the American artist Douglas Granville Chandor.
Here is the link go to page 14.

Thank you, RN.  This gives me enough information.  I was about 10 years off in my search.  You are a gem.
 :D

Update - I found it !  Unfortunately, it was in a bound volume and not suitable for scanning.  But I can either purchase a copy of the magazine or write the British Embassy in Washingon, where the article says the portrait was to be located, and see if a copy is available.

Thanks again for your help.
