Diamond Jubilee Exhibition Opens its Doors

The National Portrait Gallery’s landmark exhibition celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee has opened its doors to the public in Edinburgh.  ‘The Queen: Art and Image’ brings together sixty of the most remarkable images of Queen Elizabeth II and includes formal painted portraits, official photographs, press images and works by contemporary artists; exploring the evolution of the way The Queen has been portrayed during the sixty years of her reign. 

This will be the first National Portrait Gallery exhibition to tour other British venues, before being shown in London in 2012. The touring exhibit opened last week at the National Galleries of Scotland in Edinburghwhere it will remain until 18th September 2011.  It will then travel to Belfast in October and Cardiff in February, before arriving in London in May 2012 for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.  Keep an eye on the Diamond Jubilee Calendar for opening and closing dates of the exhibitions.
