Portrait of the artist by Anna Reynolds( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first exhibition to focus on images of artists from within the Royal Collection, 'Portrait of the Artist' not only show-cases self-portraits by world-renowned artists including Rembrandt, Rubens, Artemisia Gentileschi, Lucian Freud and David Hockney but also features images of artists by their friends, relatives and pupils, including the most reliable surviving likeness of Leonardo da Vinci by his student, Francesco Melzi. Well-known self-portraits intended to advertise the artist's talents will be shown alongside more intimate and personal works. The exhibition will examine a range of themes played out within these objects, from the 'cult' of the artist to the symbolism evoked through images of the artist's studio. The changing status of the artist over the centuries is another theme and the way in this is conveyed, both in the physical works and in the relationships between artist and patron will be highlighted. The role of monarchs in commissioning, collecting and displaying portraits of artists will also be discussed

Since the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837, Buckingham Palace has been the private London home of the royal family and the headquarters of the British monarchy. Subsequent generations have made their mark, but the Palace remains, in purpose and in essence, the creation of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.00Victoria was a modern and enlightened monarch, and introduced a number of innovations to the Palace, from the construction of the iconic East Front and elegant Ballroom to the new facilities of electricity and the telephone.00This book traces the transformation of Buckingham Palace from a relatively minor royal residence into a grand stage for state occasions, a symbol of the British monarchy and a national monument
