About

THIS EXHIBITION IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

See three versions of one of the most iconic portraits in British history, with Faces of a Queen at Queen’s House in Greenwich.

Three versions of the Armada Portrait of Elizabeth I survive, each offering a subtly different depiction of Queen Elizabeth I at the height of her power. Now, for the first time in their 430-year history, these three works are going on public display together.

The Armada Portrait was painted to commemorate the most famous conflict in Elizabeth I’s reign: the failed attempt by the Spanish Armada to invade England in 1588.
