Andy Warhol portraits to be displayed at Windsor Castle

A small selection of limited edition prints of the Queen created by Andy Warhol are to be displayed at Windsor Castle later this year, after being acquired by the Royal Collection.

Fans of the artist's work should book short breaks to the Berkshire castle between Friday, November 23rd and Sunday, June 9th to view the four pieces at the exhibit, entitled The Queen: Portraits of a Monarch.

The portraits were created in 1985 as part of a series entitled Reigning Queens and each one has been scattered with diamond dust.

They are vibrantly coloured, including one in neon pink and another in electric blue, and measure 100cm by 80cm.  The photo used to create the art was taken in April 1975 by photographer Peter Grugeon.

Alongside Warhol's work in the exhibition will be other official, commissioned portraits of the Queen.

In addition to Queen Elizabeth II, Warhol created portraits of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Queen Margrethe of Denmark and Queen Ntombi Twala of Swaziland in the series.
