Famous Queen Elizabeth II Wilding Portrait Can Be Yours on Postcard
Just 20 days after the death of her father, King George VI, then 25-year-old Queen Elizabeth, II, was photographed by renowned portrait photographer, Dorothy Wilding. Wilding first photographed the Queen as a child in 1937, at her father's coronation. To mark her own accession in 1952, Queen Elizabeth posed for Wilding a total of 59 times. Portraits by Wildling have been used on banknotes, coins, and postage stamps (part of the famous Wilding Series). This particular portrait is now owned by the National Gallery in London. It was printed by Moss Photo Service in New York.
