28 August 2012 | Australian portrait painter Ralph Heimans has been commissioned to paint an official portrait of the queen during her Diamond Jubilee year. The portrait will be unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery Canberra later this year, and will then be exhibited in London from early 2013.

Heimans has previously painted princess Mary, and Heimans states that his portrait of the queen will “portray Her Majesty outside of the traditional setting of Buckingham Palace, placing her in a context that has a special significance for her coronation and the diamond jubilee.”
