Warhol at Windsor

I never thought I'd see the day when the Royal Collection Trust would lash out on tripe by Andy Warhol, but here is the proof: Four Andy Warhol screenprint portraits of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle (CLICK). They're based on Peter Grugeon's formal photo of Her Majesty wearing a tiara and necklace, used during her Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1977. The "diamond dust" sprinkled Warhol's will glitter on public display for the first time in the exhibition The Queen: Portraits of a Monarch, which opens at Windsor Castle on 23 November and runs until 9 June 2013, bringing together a variety of portraits of The Queen from royal residencies (CLICK). One for the tourists.
