Queen Elizabeth II - an icon for the visual age

NSEAD pays tribute to Her Majesty The Queen.

Perhaps a fitting way for NSEAD to pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II is to highlight how her life has been documented by the visual arts and to share some sources of rich imagery to inspire your own tributes. Many of our members today have shared how they have been impacted by her legacy and the passing of Her Majesty. She will be remembered for her duty, dedication and patronage of the visual arts.

Our thoughts are with her family at this time.

Picturing Elizabeth: Her life in Images: This documentary explores the stories behind some of the most well known paintings and photographs of the Queen.
