The Queen - Art and Image at The National Portrait Gallery

I am very much looking forward to London being at the center of the Jubilee weekend celebrations this weekend, but for a more reflective (and quieter!) way to appreciate our monarch, I may visit 'The Queen - Art and Image' which has opened at the National Portrait Gallery this week.  Spanning the 60 years of her reign, the exhibition consists entirely of portraits of the Queen, ranging from official paintings and photographs, to responses by contemporary artists such as Lucian Freud and Andy Warhol.
