Queen Elizabeth II Fur Portrait

Marianne Corless

“Marianne Corless‘s deftly worked portrait of Queen Elizabeth II presents the standard, familiar iconic image of the distinguished royal in bust-length format. The queen’s tiara, visually inseparable from her hair, creates the impression of a dense mass atop her head. Her face spreads noticeably with the lay of the fur, widening the cheeks and mouth to remind us of the flattened snout of a lion. The mottled appearance of her garments conflates with the treatment of her skin, to create a patterned fur covering what appears to extend over her entire body…”
